75 cases of 155 (48 %) in Sleeve Gastrectomy and Bypass with 11 cases of 27(40 % ).
65 % of patients under 40 years developed cholelithiasis, and older than 40 years it was 35 %.
In 65 % Cholelithiasis were detected at first year of F.U.Obesity grade I and II it was associated with higher prevalence of cholelithiasis compared to III-IV. 86 % and 14 % respectively.
