Introduction: The application of laparoscopic cholecystectomy is investigated to effected on patients with cardiac surgery or examination of patients that were identified with cardiac problem. Patients and Methods: Between 2008-2010 total of 233 patients with laporoscopic cholecystectomy were retrospectively analyzed follow up papers. Systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, X-rays and ECGs were evaluated in preoperative examination in all patients. ECG, SpO2 monitoring was performed to all patients in the operating room. In all patients systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate and SpO2 values before the operation and during the operation were recorded. End-tidal CO2 was monitored during the operation. Additional disease duration of surgery, duration of intubation, preoperative, perioperative and postoperative need to inotropic support were recorded. Results: One hundred and one (43%) patients were men and 132 (57%) female. Forty five of 233 patients with cardiac problems are sick. Twenty five patients of these patients had coronary bypass surgery and eight patients underwent prosthetic valve surgery. As a result of preoperative transthoracic echocardiography in 12 patients were diagnosed with valve insufficiency. Demographic characteristics were similar than between the two groups. The mean operation time, insuflation time, extubation time, staying hospital time and hemodynamic data were similar than between the two groups. Conclusion: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy safely and easily can apply for application of the balanced anesthesia, low-pressure pneumoperitoneum after being stable cardiac status in patients with cardiac problem.
