This book is distinctive in that it is a truly practical guide to use of the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of many abdominal diseases. Rather than simply offering a general description of surgical laparoscopic techniques, it provides the knowledge required in order to introduce basic laparoscopic procedures into daily practice or to commence advanced laparoscopic surgery. For each surgical procedure, key points are highlighted, the necessary equipment is described, and the operating room setup essential to avoid errors or loss of time is explained. Many flow charts, tables, and figures are included to assist fast and intuitive comprehension. The book will be of interest to all of the "actors" in the operating room, including especially surgeons in training, established surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists.

This practical reference provides a broad comparison of access andexposure in open and minimal access surgery that bridges the gapbetween conventional and laparoscopic techniques while analyzingthe advantages and disadvantages of each. Abdominal Access in Open and Laparoscopic Surgery integrates adiscussion of basic surgical concepts with a survey of evolving newtechnologies and techniques. It provides a comprehensive overviewof classic surgical incisions, established minimal accessalternatives, and the emerging state of the art--gaslesslaparoscopy with subcutaneous lift systems and planar liftingdevices. Over 90 photographs--many in color--and numerous linedrawings clearly illustrate operative techniques and procedures.The indications for, and potential complications of, each techniqueare discussed within the context of standard surgical proceduressuch as cholecystectomy, appendectomy, gastrostomy, andherniorrhaphy. The book concludes with a summary of prospectiveimprovements in instrumentation and videoscopy that will continueto expand the boundaries of minimal access surgery. Individual chapters cover such topics as: * Surgical incisions * Techniques of CO2 pneumoperitoneum * Low pressure pneumoperitoneum * Alternatives to and complications of CO2 pneumoperitoneum * Subcutaneous lift system (SCLS) for laparoscopic surgery * Laparoscopic procedures using the planar lifting technique * Pros and cons of gasless laparoscopy With its detailed coverage of both fundamental concepts andadvanced technologies, Abdominal Access in Open and LaparoscopicSurgery is an ideal resource and an indispensable guide for allpracticing surgeons and surgical residents.

This is the first time a book about laparoscopy in emergency abdominal surgery has been published. Numerous articles have been published in specific surgical journals, but, until now, there has not been a book that collates all the aspects of this little-known field. The aim of this volume is to achieve a complete and easy presentation of all the implications associated with laparoscopy in emergency abdominal surgery. The book should be a manual that can be easily consulted by digestive, general, and specialized surgeons, especially in an emergency. The authors’ contributions are founded on evidence-based medicine, which give the book scientific credibility, but this is coupled with their experience of daily practice, which adds an important complementary dimension to evidence-based medicine. This is balanced by an emphasis on clarity and accessibility, because the ultimate aim of the book is educational. We hope this book will be frequently consulted, in depth, not only by specialist practitioners, but also by undergraduate students, new graduates and surgeons in training.

This book, designed primarily as a practical reference, attempts to provide a clear and pragmatic approach to the understanding of the innovative procedure in abdominal wall lifting with subcutaneous wiring. This sophisticated laparoscopic operation eliminates the conventional complications of the pneumoperitoneum method. The techniques described here do not require the use of air-tight trocars, thus allowing surgeons to operate smoothly as well as safely with better operative view and easier hemostasis, ligation, suturing, etc. This method has the additional advantage of greatly reducing the equipment and expensive disposable instruments used. This book is well illustrated with over 100 high quality and beautiful photographs.

A hernia is where an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall. Hernias usually occur in the abdomen and there are several different types, each determined by its location within the abdomen. This book is an operative guide to laparoscopic hernia repair for practising and trainee surgeons. Beginning with an introduction and discussion on anatomy, the following section provides step by step guidance on the surgical repair of different types of hernia, and potential difficulties and complications. The final chapter provides a general overview of hernia, explaining classification, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.

With millions of abdominal surgeries performed annually in the United States alone, abdominal surgery is both a large market and a large medial issue. The entire industry surrounding abdominal surgery has strived to reduce the pain and trauma associated with an operation by reducing the number and size of incisions made in the abdominal wall, but in the process of reducing openings into the abdomen, the difficulty of operating increases. In order to retract organs within the abdominal cavity while further reducing the number of ports required for surgery, the author has previously designed and fabricated a device to be inserted into the abdominal cavity through one small port. Once inside of the abdominal cavity, the device is expands to form a rigid platform across the ventral abdominal wall serving as a platform for organ retraction. While the previously fabricated device functions as intended, it's rigid shape does not match the shape of the ventral abdominal wall, and as such, the device occupies unnecessary operating space. The work of this paper involves the design of a system to permit the existing device to conform to the shape of the ventral abdominal wall while still supporting a load. Two methods were examined to permit the device to conform while still supporting a load: Flexure and Hinged joints. Both flexure and hinged joints were developed, prototyped, and analyzed to meet all functional requirements. Both methods proved ultimately successful in meeting functional requirements, yet flexure joints were significance easier to produce and thus represent a more viable solution for mass production.

Single-access laparoscopic surgery (SALS), performed using a single transumbilical access, has recently proved to bring advantages over other forms of laparoscopic surgery due to the reduction in the number of incisions and the consequent decrease in morbidity, less blood loss and postoperative pain. Furthermore, cosmesis may be improved because incision within the umbilicus renders surgery virtually scarless. Nevertheless, as with all new surgical concepts, questions may be raised regarding safety, usefulness and appropriateness. This book analyzes the use of SALS for different indications and abdominal surgical procedures based on a careful literature review of the experience of the most important surgical teams employing this approach and also the authors’ personal observations. The coverage is broad, encompassing, for example, the role of SALS in appendectomy, repair of abdominal wall defects, cholecystectomy, gastric surgery, nephrectomy, splenectomy, hemicolectomy and pancreatic, liver and gynecological surgery.

Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) has the potential to change the practice of surgery as we know it. Proponents say advantages over laprascopic surgery include lower anesthesia requirements, faster recovery and shorter hospital stays, avoidance of transabdominal wound infections, less immunosuppression, better postoperative pulmonary and diaphragmatic function, and the potential for "scarless" abdominal surgery. In this text/video set, the leading world expert in NOTES shares his experience. Three sections cover fundamentals, current clinical applications and techniques, and future perspectives.
