ABSTRACT
Focuses on a study set out to determine whether the increases in intracranial pressure (ICP) associated with carbon dioxide insufflation had any metabolic effect on the central nervous system in a head injury when compared with gasless laparoscopy. Background of the study; Materials and methods; Results and discussion.
