About this book

Laparoscopic Surgery of the Abdomen is intended to give the practicing surgeon or trainee an in-depth analysis of the technical aspects of the most commonly performed laparoscopic procedures, their indications, contraindications, and complications. Included are strategies to prevent complications as well as ways to handle them once they occur. Heavily illustrated, the book breaks new ground in visualizing operative procedures and problems.

Seven sections, comprising the core curriculum of accepted procedures in laparoscopic surgery, present gallbladder disease, common bile duct exploration, hernia, colon diseases, anti-reflux procedures, acute abdomen and the role of diagnostic laparoscopy, and emerging procedures on the spleen and adrenals. Recognized leaders in the field tackle each section, emphasizing what to do when and how to solve acute situations.

Laparoscopic Surgery of the Abdomen is a practical, must-have resource for the general surgeon, imparting the clinical insight needed for successful performance of the core miminally invasive procedures as well as a source of useful patient information for the office practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Laparoscopic surgery of the abdomen provides an extensive review of all aspects of laparoscopic surgery of the abdomen and abdominal wall. … it is written in an authoritative and well-referenced manner. Use of references is sensible with the key historic and formative articles … . This book is comprehensive, well written and a must for any individual who seeks to apply laparoscopic approaches to abdominal procedures and should be in the library of every Department of Surgery." (I.J. Beckingham, The Surgeon, Vol. 3 (4), 2005)

"The book is divided into sections encompassing all current fields of interest in minimally invasive surgery. … The most impressive feature of this book is that it combines the thoroughness of a textbook and the agility of a handbook. … Laproscopic techniques are explained in detail, also with the help of schemes and photographs. … thanks to the excellent definition and good grey scale. Final note: An excellent book both for residents in training and for experienced surgeons … ." (M. Elli, Digestive and Liver Disease, Vol. 36, 2004)
