This book is a classic in the making:a portable, concise, beautifully illustrated manual from the pioneering society for minimally invasive surgery. It provides an authoritative synopsis of the major laparoscopic and flexible endoscopic procedures in easy-to-use, outline form. Step-by-step, the authors present the indications, patient preparation, operative techniques, and strategies for prevention and complications for a wide spectrum of gold standard and emerging procedures. Important basics of laparoscopic surgery are reviewed, including equipment, set-up, access to the abdomen, generating and maintaining working space, and principles of laparoscopic hemostasis. Over 200 line drawings and photographs depict the procedures, review the instrumentation and set-up, and illustrate the operative steps.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane M. Simeone, MD (University of Michigan Medical Center)
Description: This is a pocket-sized manual designed to be a quick and complete reference guide on laparoscopy and flexible endoscopy for surgical residents.
Purpose: The author states that the purpose is to provide an educational resource for residents on the rapidly advancing fields of laparoscopy and endoscopy, and they meet this objective admirably.
Audience: The audience is surgical residents. The contributors are members of the society and are recognized authorities in the fields of laparoscopy and endoscopy.
Features: This manual is broadly divided into two sections; the first of which encompasses three quarters of the book and is focused on laparoscopy. The smaller second section covers endoscopy. The section on laparoscopy is comprised of several initial chapters addressing general principles of. laparoscopy, ranging from understanding and troubleshooting equipment to understanding physiological changes that occur during laparoscopy. This is followed by individual chapters describing the practical aspects of performing specific laparoscopic procedures, including patient selection and management. The shorter section on endoscopic procedures is somewhat less detailed, but does effectively cover the topics of patient selection, preparation, performance of specific endoscopic procedures, and their complications and treatment. The manual is clearly organized, well-written, and easy to read. The text is complemented by nicely illustrated line drawings.
Assessment: This is a clear, concise reference guide on laparoscopy and endoscopy that would be a valuable educational tool for the surgical house officer in training.
