PMID:  11252188     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pregnancy no longer is considered to be an absolute contraindication for laparoscopic procedures. Furthermore, clinically helpful guidelines are in place for laparoscopic procedures during pregnancy. However, laparoscopic operations in women in the third trimester have not yet been reported fully. We successfully operated on torsion of an ovarian cyst in a woman during her third trimester using laparascopic procedure. The patient experienced an uneventful recovery.
