Core tip: This is a large-scale retrospective randomized study aimed to explore the safety and feasibility of laparoendoscopic single-site cholecystectomy (LESSC) for the treatment of benign gallbladder diseases, compared with three-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy in clinical outcomes. It was found that LESSC is a safe and feasible procedure in selected patients, with the significant advantage of cosmesis.
