Further study details as provided by Jasper Verguts, University Hospital, Gasthuisberg:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • to check if the post-operative pain and inflammatory reaction after laparoscopy decreases when CO2 with the addition of 4% of oxygen is used instead of pure CO2 [ Time Frame: 1 week ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • the effects on CO2 resorbtion, pain and inflammation by co-variables: body mass index, length of surgery, painkiller intake and pain before surgery as defined by the Biberoglu and Behrman scale [ Time Frame: 1 week ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
