Özet

Introduction: Although laparoscopic cholecystectomy is currently the standard treatment for benign gallbladder pathologies, some cases still require conversion to open cholecystectomy. Since open cholecystectomy has a significantly higher morbidity rate and a lengthier stay in the hospital compared with laparoscopic surgery, predicting this conversion would grant a great advantage in the management of cholecystitis. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to develop a predictive statistical model.
