Step by Step Manual of Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery (Volume 4)
|Author/Editor||Rajkumar JS, Shah Neha|
A laparoscopic surgery is also known as minimally invasive surgery, which is performed by using small incisions of around 0.5 to 1.5 cm that can be made far away from the surgical site. Many small and thin surgical instruments are passed through the incision and threaded through to the operational site. It consists of small tube with a camera at the tip that can be used to view the images from inside the body to a TV monitor. A hernia occurs when the inside layers of the abdominal wall weaken then bulge or tear. The inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the weakened area to form a balloon-like sac. This, in turn, can cause a loop of intestine or abdominal tissue to slip into the sac, causing severe pain and other potentially serious health problems. This book “Step by Step Manual of Laparoscopic Surgery: Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery” has been divided into eight chapters. The first chapter of this book is on the endoscopic anatomy of inguinal region and discusses on Hesselbach’s triangle, myopectineal orifice of fruchaud, fossae, preperitoneal space including bilaminar transversalis fascia, iliopubic tract, space of retzius, dulucq’s space etc. The whole procedure of total extraperitoneal (TEP) technique for the treatment of hernia has been presented in the second chapter. The focus of the third chapter is on transabdominal preperitoneal prosthesis (TAPP) and it require access to the peritoneal cavity with placement of a mesh through a peritoneal incision. Fourth chapter talks about some important decision making in the field open or laparoscopic ventral hernia mesh plasty. The physics of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair has been provide in fifth chapter. Incisional hernia is described in sixth chapter, while the basic properties and types of meshes used in laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs has been provided in seventh chapter. The last chapter of this book provides a detailed discussion on spigelian hernia.
