Most laparoscopic procedures are performed on an elective basis. However, as general surgeons have gained more experience with laparoscopy, they are employing this procedure also for the evaluation and treatment of acute abdominal conditions such acute appendicitis, acute cholecystitis, perforated gastroduodenal ulcer and abdominal trauma, acute pancreatitis and intestinal obstruction. Although its advantages are still under debate, the laparoscopic approach has already been adopted by many centers in the emergency setting.
