Abstract





Spinal anaesthesia (SA) has shown promise as a safe substitute to general anesthesia (GA), which is the standard method for performing laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC)[2]. This research set out to evaluate the relative merits of general anesthesia vs spinal anesthesia for the purpose of facilitating laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Using low tension pneumoperitonium with CO2 and 60 patients slated for elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) procedures, the research compared the effects of general anesthesia (GA) and spinal anesthesia (SA). Each group included of 25 patients. We used propofol, fentanyl, atracurium, sevoflurane, and tracheal intubation in our general anesthesia case (n=25). To reach a sensory level of T3, 25 patients undergoing spinal anesthesia were given 15 mg of hyperbaric bupivacaine and 20 µg of fentanyl. Cost, surgical discomfort, complications, recovery, patient satisfaction, and intraoperative hemodynamic parameters were compared between the two groups. Two groups of patients were randomly assigned to undergo anaesthesia induction; twenty five individuals had spinal anesthesia and twenty five underwent general anesthesia. At2,4, and 6 hours post-procedure, patients in the spinal anesthesia group reported far less pain than those in the general anesthesia group. Comparing the two methods, spinal anesthesia was far less expensive than general anesthesia. Within one day, all patients were cleared for release.






In conclusion, spinal anesthesia is the preferred method of anesthesia for laparoscopic cholecystectomy since it is safe, practical, and does not need any changes to the technique. Additionally, it offers many benefits over general anesthesia.
