Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pregnancy has generally been considered a contraindication to laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The authors present a case of laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a 37-year-old patient who was 18 weeks pregnant. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be safely accomplished during pregnancy, provided that the open technique of insertion of the first cannula is used, and all subsequent trocars be inserted under direct vision.
