In laparoscopy, over %50 of the all complications occur during establishment of the
pneumoperitoneum. Lifting of the anterior abdominal wall is aimed to increase the distance
between the abdominal wall and the intrabdominal structures. Elevation of the anterior
abdominal wall is recommended for the access to peritoneal cavity in literatures however the
benefit exactly has not proved. This study aimed to determine the distance from anterior
abdominal wall to intraperitoneal structures during lifting of the abdominal wall, to
represent this distance -on the average- generate the safe range whether or not and compare
with this distance and patient's age, BMI and parity.
