Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has gained great popularity during the last few years. This procedure has advantages over the traditional open operation, thus making it the standard method for removal of the gallbladder at present. Only a few cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy during pregnancy have been reported. On the other hand, some authors classify pregnancy as one of the contraindications for this procedure.
