A retrospective cohort research design was used. DVD-recorded elective laparoscopic cholecystectomies of 340 patients were included in the study. Cluster sampling method was performed, utilizing the years as the sampling frame where the sample population was selected from. Researchers’ made questionnaire using checklist was utilized. Data collected was analyzed using Chi-Square test. It was revealed that the most common type of Rouviere's fissure based on Dahmane's Classification was the Open Type. For the researchers' classification, it was found out the Type O1 or the Open Type also was the most frequent. Among those who presented with intraoperative complications/events, bleeding has been shown to be the most frequent scenario in an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Rouviere's fissure tended to be protective in that it lessened the incidence of intraoperative events/complications of patients by 0.5 times compared to those patients who did not have the fissure. It was found out that there was a relationship between the presence of Rouviere's fissure and the incidence of intraoperative events/complications in patients who underwent elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy in De La Salle University Medical Center from 2010-2015.
