Introduction: The use of laparoscopy in emergency surgery brings unquestionable advantages. In our country, however, reports on the subject are scarce.
Aim: The aim of our study was to analyse the usefulness of laparoscopy in treatment of peptic ulcer perforation.
Materials and methods: The studied group consisted of 32 patients (15 men aged 19-55 and 5 women, aged 27-57) with a diagnosis of peptic ulcer perforation. 20 of them were treated by use of laparoscopy. The postoperative period was evaluated.
Results: The average operating time was 85 minutes and shortened gradually along the learning curve. The mean time of hospitalization was 6 days (minimum 4, maximum 21 days). One patient required relaparotomy on the tenth day following laparoscopic operation due to suspicion of intra-abdominal abscess. There were no other complications associated with this method.
Conclusions: The method of laparoscopic treatment of peptic ulcer perforation is fully safe.
