ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the advances in four minimally invasive procedures, the procedure for prolapse and hemorrhoids, laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic ventral hernia repair and laparoscopic colectomy. In relation to these advances in laparoscopic techniques physicians are given more options to discuss the outcomes and the emotional impact associated with the procedure. The author of this article suggest that increased surgical experience with these procedures and further advances in surgical instruments will continue to make these procedures safer and more beneficial options for a greater number of patients.

    Background: Postoperative adhesions are a major cause of morbidity, accounting for approximately 5% of the readmissions of surgical patients. Bowel obstruction is attributed to adhesions in more than half of the cases, many of which are following colon and rectal surgery. Laparoscopic surgery...

    Background: Even though the safety and efficacy of sutured anastomosis have been proved in open surgery, laparoscopic sutured anastomosis is rarely performed because it is difficult and time-consuming. We aim at description of a standardized technique for laparoscopic sutured anastomosis of the...

    Background: Single port endolaparoscopic Surgery (SPES) has gained enthusiasm in the surgical community because of the perceived better postoperative outcome, namely a single incision. We write this prospective observational study to ascertain the feasibility and safety of this technique in...

    Aim: We evaluated the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic nephropexy for symptomatic nephrotosis. Patients and Methods: Between May 2000 and December 2005, 6 women (mean age, 43.1 years) underwent laparoscopic nephropexy of 8 kidneys (6 right, 2 left). Mean body mass index was 19.6 kg/m2. Two...

    Background: Open total colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis (OTC) is a major colorectal procedure which would preclude laparoscopy in many centers because of technical difficulty and the fact that laparoscopic total colectomy (LTC) takes much longer than standard laparoscopic proctosigmoidectomy...

    Background: Laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy is one of the definite methods for the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids with lesser intraoperative bleeding and shorter hospitalization compared with abdominal hysterectomy. However, laparoscopy-assisted vaginal hysterectomy cannot...

    Background: Several studies have shown that laparoscopic surgery (LS) minimizes surgical trauma and the immune function is better preserved. Another major advantage of LS is the lower incidence of septic complications. However, several in vitro studies have shown that CO2 severely impairs...
