Background: Conventional laparoscopy is aided by CO[sub]2[/sub] insufflation, which may impair the cardiorespiratory system and have life-threatening implications. This procedure is conducted under general anesthesia (GA). Gasless laparoscopy supposedly eliminates most of those disadvantages, but is technically more difficult to perform. In the present study, we compared cardiorespiratory parameters of conventional abdominal laparoscopy under GA to gasless laparoscopy under general or epidural anesthesia.
Material/Methods: This is a prospective study. Twenty four healthy female patients undergoing gynecological laparoscopies lasting
