BORGES, MARISA DE CARVALHO et al. Pulmonary function in women: comparative analysis of conventional versus single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Rev. Col. Bras. Cir. [online]. 2018, vol.45, n.2, e1652.  Epub May 24, 2018. ISSN 0100-6991.


to evaluate the pulmonary function of women submitted to conventional and single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy.


forty women with symptomatic cholelithiasis, aged 18 to 70 years, participated in the study. We divided the patients into two groups: 21 patients underwent conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and 19, single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We assessed pulmonary function through forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), and the FEV1/FVC ratio, measured before and 24 hours after the procedure.


in both groups, FVC and FEV1 were lower in the postoperative period than those obtained in the preoperative period, with a greater reduction in the group undergoing conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Regarding the FEV1/FVC (%) values, there was no statistically significant difference in any of the groups or times analyzed.


there was a greater decline in FVC and FEV1 in the postoperative group of patients submitted to conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
