Abstract

Background and Objective: The pneumoperitoneum has been shown to decrease femoral blood flow, resulting in venous stasis. We analyzed the effects of the pneumoperitoneum and epidural analgesia on femoral vein diameter and the peak flow rate of femoral vein during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
