Advanced operative laparoscopy is being performed increasingly for various indications and in diverse patient populations, including gravid women. In the United States approximately 7.6% to 2.2% of pregnant women require nonobstetric surgery for abdominal and pelvic pathology. Increasing numbers of case reports suggest the feasibility and safety of operative laparoscopy during pregnancy. We identified certain management issues specific to these procedures based on our experience with nine cases of operative laparoscopy in women with gestations up to 22 weeks.
