Laparoscopy has been practiced for almost a century. It is a minimally invasive surgical technique in which operations in the abdominal or pelvic cavities are performed through small incisions that are usually between 5 mm to 15 mm. Laparoscopic access devices, or trocars, facilitate the insertion of various instruments into the patients abdomen, allowing the surgeon to carry out the procedure. Laparoscopes are inserted through a port of access, often at the site of the umbilicus or subxyphoid, and are equipped to illuminate and display the peritoneal cavity to allow the surgical team to perform abdominal and pelvic surgeries. Depending on the type of procedure, the number of incisions will vary; the average is three to four incisions per procedure. These sites provide entrance for other laparoscopic devices to enter the body cavity. Various hand instruments such as scissors, dissectors and graspers are used for manipulating and maneuvering organs and tissue. Alternative devices using direct energy and ultrasonic energy may be used for grasping, cutting and coagulating the tissue.
Insufflators are used for pumping carbon dioxide in to the abdominal cavity to create a pneumoperitoneum in preparation for laparoscopic surgery. The pumping of the gas creates sufficient space within the abdominal cavity for insertion and manipulation of laparoscopic devices with an adequate optical field. Suction-irrigation pumps are used to regulate fluids during the operation. Upon completion of the surgery, closure devices are used to close vessels and other internal wounds to enhance hemostasis. Some procedures such as tubal ligation and certain bariatric procedures can involve the implantation of specialized devices designed specifically for an intended procedure. Specialized laparoscopic devices such as gastric bands and female sterilization implants are analyzed separately.
Clinical data clearly shows that while laparoscopic surgery is often more expensive to perform compared to open surgery, these heightened costs are outweighed by substantial benefits to the patient, including a reduced hospital stay, less scarring and a significantly shorter recovery period.
