The physiological changes and postoperative pain are directly related with the degree of intra-abdominal pressure kept during the laparoscopy. The present study aims to examine difference between low pressure pneumoperitoneum (8 mm Hg)and High pressure pneumoperitoneum (12 mm Hg)during laparoscopic cholecystectomy in terms of pain, cardio-pulmonary function, arterial blood gas changes etc.

Study Start Date: October 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: November 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: LPLC, HPLC
LPLC: Low pressure pneumoperitoneum is defined as intraabdominal pressure kept at8 mm Hg after initial trocar insertion at 12 mm Hg HPLC: High pressure pneumoperitoneum is defined as intra abdominal pressure kept at 12 mm Hg throughout the procedure
Procedure: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is performed at either 8 mm Hg or 12 mm Hg intra-abdominal pressure
