Abstract

BACKGROUND: According in a significant way to laparoscopic surgery (LS), occasionally referred to
as the least invasive treatment, modern attentive attention has undergone a paradigm shift. The goal of this
study was to determine if any variables that contribute to umbilical port contamination in patients
undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures will reoccur. MATERIAL AND
METHODS: From December 16, 2020, to June 15, 2021, descriptive cross-sectional research was
conducted at the surgical department of the Khyber Teaching Hospital in Peshawar. A total of 233
individuals who met the criteria for cholecystectomy and showed signs of the condition underwent
laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Umbilical port contamination-causing variables were noted and examined
using SPSS Version 16. RESULTS: A total of 233 individuals who had cholecystectomy signs underwent
treatment. With a range of 18 to 60, the normal age was 42.96 years + 12 SD. The ratio of women to men
was 1.94:1. 167 patients (71.7%) were obese, 144 patients (61.8%) had a medical procedure performed on
them, and 147 patients (63%) were being treated by less experienced experts. CONCLUSIONS: The junior
laparoscopic surgeon, weight, and the length of time spent on a medical operation are the risk factors for
umbilical portsite illness.
