• Abstract

    Cholelithiasis, characterized by gallstones, is a prevalent gastrointestinal disorder affecting millions of people worldwide. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has become the standard surgical approach due to its minimally invasive nature and improved patient outcomes. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols have become comprehensive perioperative care strategies that aim to optimize patient recovery and reduce postoperative complications. While the benefits of ERAS have been demonstrated in various surgical settings, its specific impact on laparoscopic cholecystectomy for cholelithiasis remains an area of ongoing investigation. This systematic review seeks to address this gap by synthesizing the literature and evaluating the effectiveness of ERAS in improving clinical outcomes and patient adherence in the context of cholelithiasis surgery.
