Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery provides a complete, practical and timely review of the minimally invasive surgical techniques used to treat gynaecologic diseases and conditions. This book describes the full range of minimally invasive procedures in current gynaecologic practice, with discussion of the indications and contraindications and a summary of available evidence.
Edited by an internationally recognised team of gynaecology experts, A Manual of Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery is a highly illustrated resource for obstetrics and gynaecology professionals, presenting current techniques in the field. The book is comprised of 25 chapters organised into six sections, covering the basics of gynaecological surgery, laparoscopy, special situations for minimally invasive approach, possible complications of this type of surgery, and hysteroscopy. Beginning with information on the equipment used for performing minimally invasive procedures, and guidance on access in laparoscopy, the book continues with discussion on the anatomy of the female pelvis as seen through a laparoscope and provides guidance on laparoscopic suturing, tissue retrieval and anaesthesia in laparoscopy. Subsequent chapters describe specific applications of minimally invasive surgery in gynaecology, and the diagnosis and management of complications is also included. Enhanced by 300 full colour images, illustrations and tables, and complemented by a DVD-ROM providing an ABC of hysterectomy and guidance on myomectomy, A Manual of Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery is an authoritative and comprehensive guide to this area of surgery. Key Points Highly illustrated, comprehensive guide to minimally invasive surgery in gynaecology Internationally recognised editorial team from Germany and India 300 full colour images, illustrations and tables Includes DVD-ROM on hysterectomy and myomectomy
In this book, world-renowned experts describe the latest advances in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and explain why endoscopy is of key importance in so many conditions. Hysteroscopic instrumentation is described and the application of hysteroscopic techniques in patients with polyps, fibroids, malformations and infertility is explained and evaluated. Individual chapters are devoted to the current minimally invasive treatment of endometriosis, endometrial polyps and adenomyosis. The role of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology and the laparoscopic approach to hysterectomy are fully discussed. Various other applications of laparoscopy are considered, with coverage of techniques including traditional straight stick laparoscopy, barbed suture and robotic and single port surgery. Neurophysiology and the use of laparoscopic therapy to restore vital function are discussed and complications of laparoscopic surgery are also addressed.
In the last 25 years, minimally invasive surgery techniques have had a great impact on all gynecologic surgery areas, becoming the technique of choice in most leading health centers around the world. Nowadays, due to such developments, the employment of minimally invasive techniques is a feature for every gynecological surgery service, being part of their daily routine. To the same extent, it is a requirement for every gynecological surgeon to be aware and up to date regarding these techniques and their uses. The book describes and discusses minimally invasive techniques in gynecological surgery by means of an evidence-based analysis, providing clinical correlations for a practical purpose. Techniques covered include vaginal radical trachelectomy, laparoscopic radical hysterectomy, robotic surgery in gynecological cancer, hysteroscopic myomectomy, LESS surgery, deep endometriosis surgery, and laparoscopic supra cervical hysterectomy. Some of the most renowned international references in minimally invasive surgery are included in this title, making Minimally Invasive Gynecology: an Evidence Based Approach fundamental reading for all gynecologists and gynecological surgeons.
This third edition has been extensively updated to provide the gynecologic surgeon with a state-of-the-art and practical resource that can be used to review or learn about commonly performed surgical procedures in minimally invasive gynecology. To meet the needs of both novice and experienced surgeons, the text is engineered to cover the clinical decision-making, key instrumentation, and technical cascade for each surgical procedure. Wherever possible, discussion is focused on methods to optimize outcome and reduce risk. The content in this latest edition has been substantially bolstered by the addition of chapters covering vaginal hysterectomy, tissue retrieval in laparoscopic surgery, single port laparoscopy, robotic hysterectomy, robotic myomectomy, robotic sacralcolpopexy, radical robotic hysterectomy, and hemostatic agents for laparoscopic surgery.
Laparoscopy is one of the standard techniques used by all gynecologic surgeons. This clearly written and beautifully illustrated practical manual describes in detail the technical aspects of both diagnostic and operative laparoscopy and the most useful therapeutic procedures. The exquisitely rendered color drawings demonstrate surgical technique far more effectively than competing photographic atlases. The editors have brought together an internationally renowned group of authors to contribute their knowledge and expertise in the field of laparoscopy. The new edition is a thorough revision and covers all newly emerging techniques and operative equipment.
This is the first ever textbook completely devoted to single-incision minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. Expert gynecologic surgeons have collaborated to produce well-referenced and thought-provoking chapters on all common single-incision techniques in use today, including laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal, with special sections devoted to hysterectomy and gynecologic oncology procedures. Chapter topics range from the history and fundamentals of procedures to a full technical instruction manual for step-by-step execution of common procedures. This text is designed for advanced gynecologic surgeons as well as fellows in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery fellowship programs.
Gynaecological practice has changed fundamentally in the last three decades and a large proportion of major pelvic operations has been replaced by minimally invasive approaches. This book will cover minimally invasive approaches in all aspects of gynaecology including general gynaecology, oncology, urogynaecology and reproductive medicine. The chapters are written at a level appropriate for trainees/residents and general gynaecology specialists but enough details and additional resources will be provided for those who require further information. Specific aim of the book is to provide direct to the point surgical pearls which can be adapted to the daily practice instantly by the target audience. The book includes chapters on relevant surgical anatomy, principles of MIS, management of camera systems, video/image editing, initiating a successful MIS practice, improving efficiency of current MIS program, how to develop successful teaching techniques in academic setting, avoiding & managing MIS related surgical complications and preoperative/postoperative care before covering MIS for individual conditions including intensive care managements. Chapters are written by world renown authorities. ACOG guideline recently published a statement recommending vaginal hysterectomy and endoscopic hysterectomy should be considered as a first step of surgical choice. Current practice has been shifting from open cases to laparoscopic/ robotic assisted cases while vaginal cases stays steady. This shift has created an urge among gynaecologists to learn, improve or adapt laparoscopic/ robotic techniques in their practice.
This cutting-edge text for surgeons specializing in Reproductive Medicine details how the latest minimally invasive developments impact on operations in their repertoire. Illustrated with color photographs and surgical videos, this will be an essential reference in a fast-moving field.
