The Swedish Registry for cholecystectomy and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) (GallRiks) is a validated register with high coverage. The registry started on May 1, 2005 and serves as a base for audit on gallstone disease treatment and also provides a database for clinical research. The aim of this study is to present an overview of the clinical consequences and implementations in patient care that GallRiks research may have contributed to during a 10-year period. Results from studies on GallRiks data have reduced the use of antibiotic and thromboembolic prophylaxis as well as showed the importance of intraoperative cholangiography. Furthermore, the studies on GallRiks data have most probably changed the treatment strategies in ERCP. Studies on GallRiks data have changed and improved the management of patients in Sweden who undergo gallstone surgery or ERCP.
