The medical records of hundred twenty (120) patients underwent elective choleystectomy in Jala Hospital – Benghazi- were reviewed and their clinical data was analyzed. The patients were divided into two groups; Group A included sixty (60). Patients to compare drainage of the gall bladder bed versus non- drainage. Group B included other sixty (60) patients in whom a comparison between two different types of drains was done. In the former group we concluded that there are certain criteria in which drainage of the gall bladder bed cannot be omitted. In group B where the drainage was necessary to be applied, suction drainage was the preferred type.
