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.
