ABSTRACT
Development of the laparoscopic technique, new tools and facilities for cutting tissues and homeostasis have resulted in possible safe performance of most operations by means of that technique. The collected data let to recommend laparoscopic operations being convinced of satisfactory results thereof, e.g. anti-reflux operations. Constant pursuit to reduce invasiveness of surgical treatment has resulted in the invention of new facilities, such as EsophyXTM by use of which it is possible to perform anti-reflux procedures from gastric lumen. There are more and more late observations in laparoscopic treatment of digestive tract cancers, e.g. colorectal cancer, in case of which it has been evidenced that its efficacy is at least the same as in case of open technique operations, and in some tests - even higher. The laparoscopic technique is more and more often applied in pancreatic, liver or gastric surgery and laparoscopic hernia repairs are already well recognized among other operative techniques.
