Basic Laparoscopic Surgical Techniques
The lack of direct manual contact, for which palpation with current laparoscopic instruments cannot completely compensate.
The limited movement of current instruments that are inserted through a cannula anchored to the abdominal wall. The working field is a cone with a fixed point at the insertion point of the cannula. Because of the limited field of movement of laparoscopic instruments, proper placement of the cannula is critical.
The lack of normal binocular vision without true depth perception, which makes conventional techniques difficult to apply.
