By A. U. Khan, K. Pandya and M. A. Clifton

Abstract

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been greeted with enthusiasm by surgeons and patients alike. However, with the passage of time reports of complications related to this new approach are being published. We report an unusual complication of gas embolism in laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A high index of suspicion along with vigilant intraoperative monitoring will help in the early diagnosis and reduction of morbidity associated with gas embolism
