Abstract

The American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists' 1993 membership survey on operative laparoscopy had 825 respondents reporting 45,042 procedures. The most frequent indication was pelvic pain (56% of procedures), followed by infertility (38%). There were 7382 laparoscopically assisted hysterectomies reported. Compared with 1988 and 1991 survey data, the rates of unintended laparotomy, hemorrhage, and bowel or urinary tract injury increased, but the overall complication and death rates remained essentially unchanged.
