Everything you need to know about laporoscopy

Laparoscopic surgery is a technique that accesses the abdomen through several 0.5 to 1 cm incisions, called access ports. A tubular device known as a trocar is inserted into each port, through which the instruments used to proceed with the surgery are introduced. In order to obtain sufficient space in which to work, gas, carbon dioxide, is insufflated into the abdominal cavity.

The optic, called a laparoscope, accesses through one of the central ports. This projects the images of the abdominal or pelvic cavity to the video monitors in the operating room, through which the surgeon guides the intervention.

This technique has several advantages over conventional open surgery:

  • Less postoperative pain.
  • Lower risk of complications from surgical wounds
  • Lower risk of bleeding during surgery.
  • Less scarring with better aesthetic results.
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery

There are multiple surgical procedures that are performed with this minimally invasive technique:

  • In kidney surgery: Laparoscopic partial or radical nephrectomy for treatment of kidney cancer. Laparoscopic pyeloplasty for stenosis of the junction between the renal pelvis and the ureter.
  • In prostate surgery: Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer.
  • In bladder surgery: Laparoscopic radical cystectomy for treatment of bladder cancer with urinary diversion through intestinal reconstruction (ileal conduit or neobladder)
  • In pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery.

It is very important iindividualize each case and offer the best treatment for each patient, since not all patients are candidates for laparoscopic surgery.
