In the operative surgical primary care, the laparoscopic surgical technique has firmly established itself in recent years. Meanwhile, in the normal population over 90 of all cholecystectomies and over 80 of all appendectomies are performed in a minimally invasive manner. The proven benefits of the laparoscopic surgical technique, compared with conventional open surgery, are a comparatively rapid early postoperative recovery with early resumption of the general physical and occupational activity. As these benefits are equally applicable for necessary interventions during pregnancy, in recent years laparoscopy has become the preferred treatment for non-obstetric indications in the gravid patient. Overall, it can be assumed that such interventions have to be performed in approximately 2 of all pregnant patients. Numerous studies have proven here that the use of laparoscopic techniques, in particular for the expectant mother, is safe and not associated with an increased risk. On the other hand, the current pregnancy makes necessary an adapted approach to the solution of surgical problems to ensure the protection of the unborn child. On the basis of currently available data situation, recommendations are formulated which can be used as a decision-making support for a variety of clinical situations.
