Description / Abstract:


The second edition of Atlas of Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy Techniques has proven popular among gynecologists, residents, and fellows-in-training. The format is well liked by readers; most are busy practicing gynecologists who want to learn step-by-step techniques of a surgical procedure. With the advances in endoscopic technique and the invention of newer equipment and instruments, there is an urgent need to update the book. Among relatively new techniques are robotic surgery, transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy, laparoscopic radical hysterectomy, laparoscopic abdominal cerclage, and hysteroscopic sterilization.

As many gynecologists become more familiar with and start performing different types of laparoscopic hysterectomy, we have divided the discussion into laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy, total hysterectomy, and radical hysterectomy. On the other hand, salpingoscopy and falloposcopy are rarely performed now, and these subjects have been dropped from this edition. In this edition, we have added chapters on management and prevention of laparoscopic and hysteroscopic complications.

The contributors are gynecologic surgeons who are acknowledged leaders in gynecologic endoscopic surgery with many years of experience. The first three chapters discuss basic principles of advanced laparoscopy. The following 21 chapters are dedicated to laparoscopic procedures, including hysterectomies, abdominal cerclage, laparoscopy in pediatrics and adolescents, and transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy. These chapters are followed by a discussion of endoscopic fetal surgery and nine chapters on hysteroscopy technique and procedures. The final two chapters deal with complications of laparoscopy and hysteroscopic surgery.

This is a manual for practicing gynecologists, residents, and fellows-in-training. Readers will gain an understanding of the practical step-by-step techniques involved in laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures and will learn about the potential complications and how to avoid them. As in the previous editions, we maintain the simple and easy-to read format of the book.
