Abstract

Day-surgery setting allows to combine patients' satisfaction to cost-saving policies that seems to be more and more important for a modern hospital management. Minimally invasive surgery seems to be the ideal surgical approach for day-case procedures since, reducing trauma to a minimal level, allows patients to return quick to a normal life with minimal nursing assistance. Extensive review of the most recent article has been performed in this article in order to define the current evidences that support the use of laparoscopic surgery in a day-case setting. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, anti-reflux procedure and hernia repair seems to be justified according to the results of the published data. Patients' selection and hospital organization seem to be mandatory in order to obtain successful results.
