Laparoscopic Surgery
spacer

Antisepsis, anaesthesia and minimal access surgery are the three advances in the field of surgery in this century.  Laparoscopic surgery also referred to as minimal access surgery or keyhole surgery describes the performance of surgical procedures with the assistance of a video camera, telescope ( view image ) and several thin instruments ( view image ). During the surgical procedure, small incisions are made and the abdominal cavity is distended with absorbable gas. Plastic tubes called ports are placed through these incisions ( view image ). The camera and the instruments are then introduced through the ports which allow access to the inside of the patient.( view image )

The camera transmits an image of the organs inside the abdomen onto a television monitor ( view image ). The laparoscopic surgeon is not able to see directly into the patient without the traditional large incision. The video camera becomes a surgeon’s eyes in laparoscopy surgery, since the laparoscopic surgeon uses the image from the video camera positioned inside the patient’s body to perform the procedure.

The restricted vision, the difficulty in handling of the instruments (new hand-eye coordination skills are needed), the lack of tactile perception and the limited working area are factors which add to the technical complexity of this surgical approach. For these reasons, minimally invasive surgery has emerged as a highly competitive new sub-specialty within various fields of laparoscopic surgery.
