Videolaparoscopyassisted Implantation Of Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter 5162

Historically, this procedure has been performed under general anesthetic because a pneumoperitoneum with CO2 gas is not well tolerated by patients. Subsequently, this procedure has been modified by Giannattasio et al. and Crabtree and Fishman and can now be performed under local anesthesia with nitrous oxide gas and intravenous sedation. Currently videolaparoscopy is used more due to many benefits such as lower risk of trauma, short recovery time, short hospital stay, and small surgical scar (51).
