Trauma is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the younger age group. Though diagnostic laparoscopy has been attempted in trauma earlier, with the advance in minimal access techniques, there is an increasing attempt at advancing the indications for laparoscopy in the setting of trauma. Though there are reports and studies on the successful use of laparoscopy in the setting of abdominal trauma, it is essential to remember that laparoscopy in trauma is associated with risks inherent in the procedure itself and also with higher incidence of missed injuries if used as a diagnostic tool.
