Abstract

Study Objective. To compare complication rates of diagnostic and operative laparoscopy. Design. Retrospective study (Canadian Task Force classification 11-2). Setting. One medical center and three teaching hospitals. Patients. Six thousand four hundred fifty-one women with various indications for laparoscopic diagnosis and/or laparoscopic surgery from January 1994 through June 1999. Intervention. Diagnostic and operative laparoscopies. Measurements and Main Results. Forty-two major complications occurred that directly resulted in one death. One patient had stomach injury, 3 had major vessel injuries, 5 had ureter injuries, 10 had intestinal injuries, and 23 had bladder injuries. The overall complication rate for all laparoscopies was 0.65% (42/6451); however, it rose to 0.80% (39/4865) for operative laparoscopy compared with 0.19% for diagnostic laparoscopy (3/1586; p
