Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The risk of operation during pregnancy is a concern to both patients and surgeons. Operative treatment for gallstone disease during pregnancy is therefore performed only when the severity of symptoms exceeds the tolerance of the patient. The insufflation of the abdomen during laparoscopy and the concerns regarding adequate exposure are significant in the performance of such operations. When the indications are appropriate, laparoscopic cholecystectomy can be conducted safely during the course of an intrauterine pregnancy.
