Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This practical reference provides a broad comparison of access and exposure in open and minimal access surgery that bridges the gap between conventional and laparoscopic techniques while analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of each. Abdominal Access in Open and Laparoscopic Surgery integrates a discussion of basic surgical concepts with a survey of evolving new technologies and techniques. It provides a comprehensive overview of classic surgical incisions, established minimal access alternatives, and the emerging state of the art--gasless laparoscopy with subcutaneous lift systems and planar lifting devices. Over 90 photographs--many in color--and numerous line drawings clearly illustrate operative techniques and procedures. The indications for, and potential complications of, each technique are discussed within the context of standard surgical procedures such as cholecystectomy, appendectomy, gastrostomy, and herniorrhaphy. The book concludes with a summary of prospective improvements in instrumentation and videoscopy that will continue to 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 and advanced technologies, Abdominal Access in Open and Laparoscopic Surgery is an ideal resource and an indispensable guide for all practicing surgeons and surgical residents.
