Mortality rates for GBCA closely follow incidence rates. The steeper decline in mortality realized from 1990 to 1991 and onwards coincides with the start of a second peak of increased cholecystectomy rates in Scotland and the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Western countries [36, 185, 197]. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy accounted for a 30–60 % increased rate of cholecystectomy with the largest increases seen in women aged 45–65 years of age when it was introduced [197, 232]. Using diagnosis, treatment and survival data from the United States National Cancer Database (NCDB), patient cohorts in 1989–1990 and 1994–1995, notably before and after the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy, did not show increased numbers of early stage (Stage 0, I) cancers [197].
