Description

Laparoscopic surgery impacted the surgical world in the United States in 1990. This report reviews the initial experience of 34 surgeons in 8 teaching hospitals of the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine. There were 538 cases reported from May 1, 1990 to January 31, 1991. There was no mortality and the morbidity rate was 4.8%, including three bile duct injuries. The conversion rate to an open procedure was 6.1%. The criteria for credentialing, training, and resident and faculty education are included. The data reported by the Surgery Department of Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine are very similar to reported series from the current literature.
