About this book

This book is distinctive in that it is a truly practical guide to use of the laparoscopic approach for the treatment of many abdominal diseases. Rather than simply offering a general description of surgical laparoscopic techniques, it provides the knowledge required in order to introduce basic laparoscopic procedures into daily practice or to commence advanced laparoscopic surgery. For each surgical procedure, key points are highlighted, the necessary equipment is described, and the operating room setup essential to avoid errors or loss of time is explained. Many flow charts, tables, and figures are included to assist fast and intuitive comprehension. The book will be of interest to all of the "actors" in the operating room, including especially surgeons in training, established surgeons, nurses, and anesthetists.

Reviews

“This brief handbook focuses on the setting and choreography for common laparoscopic operations. … The book seems most appropriate for operating room nurses, scrub technologist residents, and surgical trainees. … The book is logically divided, covering a broad topic in manageable subject areas by organ system or surgical specialty.” (Patrick W. McGonagill, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2016)
