Multivariate linear regression analysis was performed with adjustment for age, gender, Charlson comorbidity index, and degree of cholecystitis. (b) Complication rate in the cholecystostomy and acute cholecystectomy groups. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed with adjustment for age, gender, Charlson comorbidity index, and degree of cholecystitis.
