Background: The technical feasibility of laparoscopically assisted procedures in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) has been reported repeatedly. These minimally invasive techniques need an experienced surgeon in IBD and laparoscopic techniques. Own Results: Prospective documented laparoscopic procedures in IBD were analyzed. Since 1994 laparoscopy has been performed in 64 patients with Crohn's disease and since 1996 laparoscopically assisted procedures have been performed in 22 patients with ulcerative colitis. Conclusion: Laparoscopic surgery in patients with IBD is a safe procedure with low morbidity. The advantages of minimally invasive surgery are proven for these patients as well.
