Cost and benefit of the trained laparoscopic team. A comparative study of a designated nursing team vs a nontrained team.
In spite of the emergence of laparoscopic cholecystectomy as the gold standard for treatment of symptomatic gallstones, questions still remain regarding its overall cost effectiveness, especially at low-volume centers where operating room (OR) time and operative complications are higher. We hypothesize that the presence of a well-organized, dedicated laparoscopic OR team will improve surgical outcomes for this procedure. This study compares the operative results of an advanced and a basic laparoscopic surgeon using either a designated laparoscopic operating team or a nondesignated team.
