  • Abstract. The objective of this study was to determine the morbidity associated with trocar and needle insertion for laparoscopic surgery and to identify risk factors for complications. Data from a prospectively collected database of all laparoscopic operations performed at a major teaching hospital over a 4-year period were analyzed. In 203 patients closed laparoscopy (Veress needle plus blind trocar insertion) was used to establish the pneumoperitoneum. Open laparoscopy with a Hasson’s trocar… CONTINUE READING
