Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical technique, which a telescopic rod lens connected to a video camera for observing the abdominal cavity is inserted through 5mm~10mm trocar to confirm lesions on TV monitor after injecting carbon dioxide into the abdomen and operations are performed through other 2 small incisions on the lower abdomen. There is also single-port laparoscopy, which is requiring only a single small incision of 1~1.5cm.
Laparoscopic surgery, also called pelviscopic surgery, and it is called laser laparoscopic surgery because it sometimes uses the laser cautery. And there is hysteroscopic surgery in which operations are performed in uterus by inserting camera and surgical instruments through vagina when lesions are located in uterus. These laparoscopic surgery is rapidly developing especially in the gynecology field and now it is introduced in
the surgeries of gynecology such as treatments of ectopic pregnancy and endometriosis, ovarian tumor extirpation, tubal replantation, myomectomy, hysterectomy, and gynecological malignancy extirpation. It is also used at the infertility clinic to investigate the causes of and to treat infertility. CWH is performing all the mentioned surgeries with the state-of-the-art medical instruments of laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.
Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
Less pain. A lot less pain versus an open procedure.
Less chance of side effects such as infection. Reduced exposure of internal organs to possible contamination thereby reduced risk of acquiring infections.
Less hospital stay. Early discharge versus an open procedure.
Short recovery time. Normally immediate return to everyday living after discharge is possible.
Less post-operative scarring. Smaller incision reduces size of scar resulting better aesthetic effect.
More delicate operation is possible by securing expanded clear surgical view. Patients can be treated more delicately and accurately.
Disadvantages of Laparoscopic Surgery
Laparoscopic surgery is clearly advantageous versus an open procedure.
However, the surgery will be impossible by failure of securing clear view when adhesions of small intestine or large intestine are severe and serious. In this case, an open procedure is unavoidable. It doesn't mean that laparoscopic surgery is always impossible when there is adhesion. It depends on the degree of adhesion.
