Background: Biliary pancreatitis (BP) constitutes 30-55% of all cases of acute pancreatitis. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become the gold standard for the surgical treatment of gallbladder disease. We aimed to compare and evaluate the relation between the timing of LC and the rates and reasons of conversion to open surgery (OS) after BP.
