With the introduction of the technique of Interventional laparoscopy, a new era of minimally invasive general surgery has begun. The well-established principles of general surgical technique have not been altered by this new technology. As the new laparoscopic technology has become available, intraabdominal laparoscopic suturing and ligating techniques have been developed. The authors have attempted to elucidate the techniques of endoligation, “Endoloop” application, endosuture placement, sling suture placement, and continuous suture placement in laparoscopic surgery.
