The purpose of this study is to establish the incidence of bacterial presence in benign gallbladder diseases, the main germs involved and their sensitivity to antibiotics, in order to perform an appropriate curative and prophylactic therapy. Bile has been randomly harvested during surgery and used for aerobic and anaerobic bacterial cultures. These cultures revealed the prevalent presence of Gram-negative germs, among which Escherichia Coli, Proteus spp., and Klebsiella spp. were the most frequent ones. The local antibiotic sensitivity profile was assessed for the cultured germs.
