PMID:  8043927     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Acute calculus cholecystitis during pregnancy can be a difficult management problem. Two pregnant patients with cholecystitis refractory to conservative management underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy at a community hospital. One patient was treated under epidural anesthesia. Pregnancy should not be an absolute contraindication to laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and epidural anesthesia should be considered.
