Gynecological laparoscopy is a commonly performed procedure. Providing anesthesia for this can present a challenge, particularly in the day surgery population. Poor analgesia, nausea, and vomiting can cause distress to the patient and increased cost for the health system, because of overnight admission. In this review we discuss anesthetic and analgesic techniques for day-case gynecological laparoscopy. The principles include multimodal analgesia, the use of the oral route wherever possible, and the contribution of the surgeon.
