Optimization of pre-operative preparation and post-operative management of children with cholelithiasis

The article discusses the course of the post-operative period in 60 children aged from 7 to 17, who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy due to cholelithiasis. The authors worked out a scheme of preventing complications – Duspatalin (mebeverine) in combination with Kreon and Duphalac for 7 days before the planned operation and for 3 weeks after it – that permitted to considerably reduce the number of complications in the early post-operative period, namely, cholestasis and reactive pancreatitis.
