More About This Title Abdominal Access in Open and Laparoscopic Surgery


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.
