Abstract

We report our experience with laparoscopic surgical treatment of gallstone ileus, along with cholecystectomy and repair of a cholecystoduodenal fistula. The technique and advantages are discussed. To our knowledge, this is the first such case done laparoscopically to be reported in the world literature.
