Objective To determine the incidence and predictors of risk for operative complications, conversions to laparotomy, and postoperative admissions after laparoscopic procedures. Methods We obtained demographic information on and medical histories of a consecutive series of 843 women who underwent laparoscopic surgery for all procedures other than tubal ligation at Brigham and Women's Hospital during 1994. All major complications after surgery were recorded. Major operative complications were… 
Factors associated with complications and conversion to laparotomy in women undergoing laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy
TLDR
Risk factors identified in this study include a history of previous cesarean section (twice or more) and myomectomy, body mass index ≥30 kg/m2 and uterine weight ≥500 g and the findings may be useful in counseling women preoperatively about the potential complications of LAVH.
Analysis of failed and complicated laparoscopy on a gynecologic oncology service.
TLDR
The incidence of failed and complicated laparoscopy is low on a gynecologic oncology service and presence of adhesions is the only significant independent risk factor predictive of failed or complicated Laparoscopies.
Intraoperative and postoperative complications of gynecological laparoscopic interventions: incidence and risk factors
TLDR
All patients who underwent laparoscopic interventions from September 2013 to September 2017 at the Department of Gynecology, Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine, Saarland University Hospital were identified retrospectively using a prospectively compiled clinical database and Binary logistic regression analysis was used to identify independent risk factors for intra- and postoperative complications.
Major complications of operative and diagnostic laparoscopy for gynecologic disease.
TLDR
Laroscopic surgery is appropriate for managing various gynecologic diseases and has an acceptable complication rate, however, operative laparoscopy should be performed carefully because its rate of complications is significantly higher than that of diagnostic laparoscope, especially for laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy.
Major complications of operative gynecologic laparoscopy in southern Taiwan.
TLDR
Early recognition of injuries, preferably intraoperatively, with immediate appropriate treatment is crucial and it is also important to be alert to early manifestations of complications in the postoperative observation period.
Factors Determining Conversion to Laparotomy in Patients Undergoing Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
TLDR
An awareness of risk factors for conversion is important for better patient selection for TLH and indirect measurement of uterine weight by sonography and detailed history taking is helpful in determining the appropriate hysterectomy route.
Major complications associated with laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy: ten-year experience.
TLDR
The rate of major complications associated with LAVH can be reduced when the procedure is performed by a well-trained laparoscopic surgeon compared with a less-experienced general gynecologist.
Complications of gynecologic laparoscopy.
TLDR
The complication rate in this review was similar to that published in the literature, with the exception of ileus and infection, which occurred at higher rates in the authors' institution.
Risk factors for conversion to laparotomy during laparoscopic management of an ectopic pregnancy
TLDR
Less experienced surgeon, BMI>30 kg/m2, and large amount of free fluid on ultrasound increase the risk of conversion to laparotomy during laparoscopic management of ectopic pregnancy.

Diagnosis and Management of Serious Urinary Complications After Major Operative Laparoscopy
TLDR
Serious urinary complications after major operative laparoscopy were discovered in 1.6% of patients, which compares favorably to serious urine complications after standard gynecologic surgery.
Complications of laparoscopy--operative and diagnostic.
TLDR
Operative laparoscopy is efficacious for a variety of gynecologic surgical procedures, including lysis of adhesions, tubal surgery, ovarian surgery, uterine surgery, or destruction of endometriosis.
A Nationwide Analysis of Laparoscopic Complications
TLDR
Diagnostic and sterilization laparoscopies appear to be safe, but more complex laparoscopic procedures are associated with an unacceptably high number of serious complications requiring continuous follow-up and expertise.

Randomized Comparison of Laparoscopy- Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy With Standard Vaginal Hysterectomy in an Outpatient Setting
TLDR
Although patients having laparoscopy- assisted hysterectomy required statistically significantly more pain medication and had lower postoperative hematocrit measurements, this did not make a clinical difference in the postoperative courses.
Laparoscopic versus abdominal hysterectomy.
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that in the hands of experienced operative laparoscopists, lapARoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy is preferable to abdominal hystEREctomy for selected candidates.
Thermal injury to the bowel as a complication of laparoscopic sterilization.
TLDR
Thermal injury to the small bowel occurred four times in a series of 7466 consecutive laparoscopies and tubal cauterization performed for sterilization and Histologic study of the excised specimen showed full thickness coagulative necrosis of the bowel wall.
