Abstract

Laparoscopic surgery is an established technique for minimally invasive surgery of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis, and it has been used in several surgical disciplines. Its early application was in gynecological surgery in the 1960s and 1970s. Laparoscopic surgeries appeared to be advantageous compared to open, chest, abdominal, and pelvic surgery in reducing surgical trauma, lessening postoperative pulmonary complications, decreasing both postoperative pain, and ileus, allowing earlier ambulation and improving recovery times. From an economic standpoint these minimally invasive procedures decrease hospital stay and provide an earlier return to everyday activities. The disadvantages include longer anesthesia and surgical times, a steeper learning curve, and higher equipment costs.
