The aim of the study was to estimate the prevalence and causes of obstructive icterus in patients operated on during the 2003-2004 period at University Department of Surgery, Split University Hospital in Split. In addition, data on the patient age and sex, type of surgical treatment, and existence and impact of risk factors on operative outcome were analyzed. Data on 114 patients with obstructive icterus treated at the Department during the 2-year period were retrospectively analyzed. Obstructive jaundice is a disease predominantly affecting female population (61.4% of patients), mostly those aged 60-74 (40% of patients). Cholelithiasis with choledocholithiasis is the most common cause of obstructive jaundice. Therefore, the most frequently used procedure for obstructive jaundice is cholecystectomy with or without choledochotomy and concrement extraction. The number of patients diagnosed with obstructive icterus shows a considerable increase. Although the same surgical methods have been applied for years, endoscopic surgery has gradually displaced classic methods of surgical treatment.
