Gallstone disease (GBS) is one of the most common diseases of modern man. It ranks third after cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus. In developed countries cholelithiasis affects 10-15% of adults.

In recent years the majority of these surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques (small-access surgery, endovideosurgery, transluminal surgery). As the number of surgeries on ALS is constantly growing, the number of patients with various postoperative problems is increasing accordingly. According to different authors, 1-2 of every 10 operated patients after cholecystectomy continue to experience discomfort of the gastrointestinal tract, pain, digestive disorders, repeated painful attacks. Gastroenterologists group such symptoms under the term "postcholecystectomy syndrome" (PCES). Recurrence of pain in half of the cases occurs within the first year after surgery, but it can also occur in the long term.
