By Francisco A. R. Garcia and Joel M. Childers

Because of the significant morbidity that can occur with this complication, it is important that clinicians be aware of its incidence, presentation, and management.

Management of laparoscopic bowel injuries is discussed and recommendations are made for avoidance of such complications
