There is a strong association between obesity and gallstones. However, there is no clear evidence regarding the optimal order of Roux‐en‐Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and cholecystectomy when both procedures are clinically indicated.
Based on cross‐matched data from the Swedish Register for Cholecystectomy and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (GallRiks; 79 386 patients) and the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg; 36 098 patients) from 2007 to 2013, complication rates, reoperation rates and operation times related to the timing of RYGB and cholecystectomy were explored.
There was a higher aggregate complication risk when cholecystectomy was performed after RYGB rather than before (odds ratio (OR) 1·35, 95 per cent c.i. 1·09 to 1·68;
Cholecystectomy should be performed before, not during or after, RYGB.Full text
