Methodological approaches to studying patient quality of life after cholecystectomy (literature review)


In the therapeutic practice of a therapist, patients in post-cholecystectomy syndrome or “Oddy sphincter dysfunction” are quite common. To rationally build the therapeutic and diagnostic process the gastroenterologist needs to know the “surgical background” of the patient. The peculiarities of surgery can also be of significant importance for the quality of life of patients with post-cholecystectomy syndrome. Patients' quality of life is a relevant topic in patient care after surgery, as well as in medical practice in general. This review analyses the concept of quality of life associated with the health of patients after cholecystectomy. We outlined state-of-the-art health-related ideas of Western researchers about quality of life, as well as methods for assessing it and the results of applying different methodological approaches among patients after cholecystectomy. We presented the results of analysis of 34 literary and informational foreign sources. We searched literature using the Medline database. We showed significance of assessment of patients' quality of life after cholecystectomy as an indicator of treatment effectiveness. We made a comparison of quality of life indicators after an open intervention and laparoscopic cholecystectomy and noted the advantages of the latter.
