Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy has been used for the resolution of acute abdominal surgical conditions in the second trimester of pregnancy for years. There are few case reports, however, regarding its use in rare presentations of the acute abdomen later in pregnancy. CASE: We report a case of the use of laparoscopy in the resolution of an intussusception in the 34th week, creating a smaller incision and providing the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. CONCLUSION: We suggest that laparoscopy be considered for further utilization as a safe and minimally invasive alternative for surgical procedures in the third trimester of pregnancy.
