LAPAROSCOPY | what is it ?

WHAT IS LAPAROSCOPY?
It is the technique that allows to undergo surgical procedures from outside of the abdominal cavity introducing the instruments through small orifices, without needing an open wound to reach the location of the surgery.

By means of a gas insuflator (CO2) the abdominal cavity is expanded allowing the space necessary to introduce the different surgical instruments. The procedures are visualized through a scope attached to a video camera connected to a TV monitor.


HOW IS A LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY DONE?
Instruments are introduced through some tubes (trocars) that are set through the skin. The number of these trocars will depend on the surgery complexity. There are several instruments to work through these ports some equivalent to open surgery and others laparoscopy specifical designed.

All this intrumentation is in constant evolution with continuous new versions appearing, allowing for improvement in the different surgical techniques. This fact has led to new surgeries by a laparoscopic approach not feasible some years ago.
