Undoubtedly, the most widely used laparoscopic procedure in the world is cholecystectomy, but despite being one of the sophisticated techniques, the risk of complications remains high. The objective of the study was to determine the surgical complications of patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy at the Central Military Hospital during the period January 2019 to June 2020, The study was observational, descriptive, prospective, with non-probability sampling of consecutive cases, of patients admitted to the general surgery service of the Central Military Hospital undergoing videolaparoscopic cholecystectomy during the period mentioned above. The sample corresponded to 371 operative patient files. The surgical complication of patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy was 1.06%. The ages of the patients were between 15 to 39 years old in 36.81% and 51.28% were female. Complications during the development of cholecystectomy were two cases of hemorrhages in the operative bed that eventually turned into open surgery, and complications that originated in the immediate postoperative period included bilioperitoneum and leakage of the clip of the cystic artery.
