Abstract

Acute cholecystitis is one of the most frequent non-obstetric surgical pathologies during pregnancy. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the treatment of choice for these patients, regardless of the trimester of pregnancy and the delay in treatment implies an increase in the incidence of complications derived from the biliary pathology. This review offers an update for the decision making and medical-surgical management of this entity in the pregnant patient, as well as some recommendations to be carried out in the operating room that we must know and that will optimize the results obtained in the procedure.
