Background/Aims: Since the first successful laparoscopic cholecystectomy with the establishment of pneumoperitoneum in France by Mouret in 1987, it has become the golden standard for cholecystectomy. Generally techniques with four trocars have been used with surgeons but some of them prefer 3-trocar techniques. Our aim is to compare the clinical outcomes of three- and four-port techniques prospectively.
