With a prospective Morbidity and Mortality database, all the minimal access surgical procedures carried out between and were included in this study. Statistical analyses were used to valuate modification of surgical techniques in to 2 periods period 1: January to February ; period 2: February to February A total of minimal access procedures were performed on patients.
The overall complication rate was 2. These results provide the relevance of adequate recording system and standardized classification for analyses and reduction of complications for pediatric minimal access procedures.

Monitoring should include continuous electrocardiogram, pulse oximetry, non-invasive blood pressure measurement, PETCO2 measurement and temperature monitoring. A precordial stethoscope is useful in infants. Peak inspiratory pressuse should also be watched closely. Postoperative analgesia is best provided with a multimodal approach using a combination of local infiltration of the trocar insertion site, opioids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Caudal epidural block has been demonstrated to be effective following inguinal herniorrhaphy with laparoscopy in children. Laparoscopic surgery has found increasing applications in the adult patient population all over the world and it is reasonable to assume that it will do so in the paediatric patients. With minor modifications in anaesthetic technique and appropriate care, laparoscopic approach to surgical procedures has been shown to be safe even in the neonatal patient. The patient's underlying cardiorespiratory status, pre-existing medical conditions and the changes in cardiorespiratory physiology induced by laparoscopy should be taken into consideration when planning the anaesthetic technique for these patients.

An increasing number of diagnostic and surgical procedures are being done laparoscopic not only in adults but also in paediatrics patients. In addition to the routine anaesthetic considerations for any surgical patient, the choice of the anaesthetic technique in patients undergoing laparoscopic procedures should consider the patient's underlying cardio respiratory functions induced by the pneumoperitoneum and carbon dioxide [CO2] insufflations. This article describes the physiological alterations induced by laparoscopic procedures in children and the anaesthetic implications of laparoscopic in the paediatric patient population.
