Resumen

DE ARETXABALA, Xabier; BENAVIDES, Carlos  y  ROA, Ivan. Gallbladder cancer: Preliminary evaluation of the GES program to prevent the disease. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.3, pp.196-201. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.10.005.

Goal: To evaluate published data related to the program ‘Cholecystectomy as prevention of Gallbladder Cancer’. Method: Analysis of the results obtained from the DEIS web page (Ministry of Health of Chile). Results: Since 2006, The Chile Ministry of Health began a program to reduce the number of gallbladder cancer cases in Chile. To accomplish the above, Chile Government has guarantied the execution of a cholecystectomy program under parameters of quality, opportunity and financial support between the ages of 35 and 49 years old. During 2006, 42,780 patients corresponding to the ICD 10 codes, K80-K83 between 20 and 64 years old were discharged from Chilean Hospitals. In 2012, six years after the beginning of the program, 58,818 were discharged. The program would make done possible to discharge approximately 39,419 extra patients. On the other hand, during the last ten years, a decrease in the mortality rate of gallbladder cancer has been observed in Chile. Conclusion: Although since the beginning of the program an increase in the number of patients discharged is observed, the decrease in the gallbladder cancer mortality seems not to have relation with the program.
