Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Paul Jose, MBBS, MS, MRCS, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This atlas depicts laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery of the gastrointestinal system, intraperitoneal solid organs, and defects of diaphragm and abdominal wall while presenting a summary of relevant anatomy, preoperative evaluations, patient positioning, location of ports, and steps for each procedure. The most unique feature of the book is the addition of pearls of wisdom from experienced surgeons on each procedure on how to avoid and manage iatrogenic injuries and make the operation easier.
Purpose: The primary objective is to guide surgeons through the complete process of minimally invasive surgery. This is a valuable book in view of the continuous modifications of the steps and instruments involved in minimally invasive surgery. While the book meets the objectives for trainee surgeons, it needs more illustrations to be of more help for experienced surgeons.
Audience: The authors intend the book for medical students, trainee surgeons, and experienced laparoscopic surgeons. Although this is a great book for everyone in the operating room, it is not comprehensive enough for experienced laparoscopic surgeons, for whom it might serve as a refresher manual.
Features: The book covers most aspects of laparoscopic surgery. The best feature of the book is the comprehensive coverage of each procedure. The diagrams denoting the positions of ports are particularly useful. The chapters on myotomy and fundoplication appear to be the best. Complex procedures need more illustrations to fully convey the steps involved to be comparable to videos.
Assessment: This is a gem for trainee surgeons. It will allow them to quickly comprehend various laparoscopic procedures as well as to understand and assist more effectively. One major advantage over other books of the same genre is the use of bullet-point presentations of patient positions, instruments, and anatomy.
