Background: In laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC), application of clips is the standard method for controlling the cystic duct and artery. However, this is not without problems. We propose a modified technique for management of cystic duct and artery in LC. Methods: Since 2007, 328 patients presented with symptomatic gallstones were included. In those patients, the cystic artery was divided by monopolar cautery and the cystic duct was ligated intracorporeally using nonabsorbable suture. Results: Three patients (0.9%) have bleeding from cauterized cystic artery; bleeding was controlled by diathermy in two of them and application of metal clip was necessary in the remaining patient. Cystic duct leak was detected in only one patient (0.3%), and it was managed by percutaneous drainage. At follow up we did not encounter abnormalities suggestive of bile duct stricture. Conclusion: The proposed modification of LC is feasible, practical, safe and economic as well. It is associated with reduced risk of postoperative morbidity.
