[The iatrogenic small bowel perforation as a complication of laparoscopic cholecystectomy].

Having done 1 125 laparoscopic cholecystectomies we want to report an exceptional case of perioperative bowel lesion. The symptoms began with abdominal pain on the third postoperative day, followed by an evacuation of intestinal contents out of the Robinson-Drainage. The laparotomy showed a 4 mm lesion of the terminal ileum, which could be excised and closed. Any other complications were not recognized. The reason that caused the perforation could not be clarified. Possible mechanisms will be discussed.
