About this book


This atlas, containing a wealth of clear operative images, is designed to enable trainee surgeons to visualise the surgical field for procedures specific to laparoscopic colorectal surgery, thereby facilitating understanding and learning of surgical techniques and avoidance of intra- and postoperative complications. Step-by-step guidance is provided for a wide range of procedures employed in patients with benign and malignant tumours, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, rectal prolapse and other conditions. Examples include right colectomy techniques, sigmoid colectomy, left hemicolectomy, total colectomy, panproctocolectomy, total mesorectal excision, Hartmann’s procedure and its reversal and rectopexy. Throughout, meticulous attention is paid to surgical anatomy. Whenever considered necessary, additional line drawings are included to aid comprehension of particular steps in the surgery. Readers seeking to improve their comprehension of surgical anatomy and how to perform these operative procedures will find the atlas to be an unparalleled source of information and assistance. A complementary book from the same authors focuses on open colorectal surgery.
