Overview

Part of a series of multimedia surgical teaching tools edited by Dr. Rosser, of Yale University School of Medicine, this provides interactive, hands-on training in Nissen fundoplication from a laparoscopic perspective. Detailed video/still images of anatomical structures familiarise the user with the stepped procedures of each stage of operation, while Room Set-up demonstrates the correct orientation of surgical/visualisation equipment and surgical personnel. The Procedure section walks users through all phases of the operation, also allowing jumps to another phase out of sequence for independent review. Indications/contraindications are discussed, as are complications. Finally, specific to this program are a comprehensive overview of the pathophysiology of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and the medical management procedures for its treatment, as well as the evolution of several fundoplication procedures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John F. Sweeney, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This two-disk CD-ROM set is a description of the anatomy, technical pitfalls, OR setup, and other valuable pieces of advice for laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. One disc is primarily for Windows 95 users, while the other is for Macintosh users. There is narrated, full-color video detailing each step of the procedure with expert commentary.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a full narrated video of the laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication technique.
Audience: For surgeons with skills in advanced laparoscopic surgery, this CD-ROM is an excellent reference point to expand their skills for laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. This is also an excellent resource to identify potential pitfalls and problems during laparoscopic Nissan fundoplication for the novice laparoscopic surgeon. It will also be a valuable resource to residents in training, but it will be a bit over a medical student's level of expertise. The primary author is a credible authority in laparoscopic surgery, and commands a national reputation as a leader in laparoscopic surgical education.
Features: This CD-ROM includes a basic discussion of pathology and pathophysiology of gastroesophageal reflux disease and also of several treatment options, both operative and non-operative. Operative procedure coverage is complete with valuable insights into the technical aspects of the laparoscopic procedure including port placement and laparoscopic room set-up. It is, however, difficult to access some of the video clips of the important steps the laparoscopic procedure. An error message was received when attempting to access the video clips on two separate Windows 95-compatible computers. The color and clarity of some of the graphics are also not very sharp.
Assessment: This is a credible piece of work. However, there were some technical problems during my review of this product that make it less than optimal. Until these can be addressed and there is 100% certainty that the CD-ROM will run on all computers, I would not recommend it at the present time.
