In this educational tutorial, a patient had a diagnostic laparoscopy done by an inexperienced laparoscopist. When the patient presented, she had multiple sinuses around the umbilicus and was taking antibiotics without any benefit.
Obtaining reliable hemostasis is crucial as part of laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomies, and over the past 20 years, various methods to do so have been advocated. For instance, in 1989, Harry Reich recommended using sutures to control the uterine vessels, as monopolar, bipolar, and laser instruments available at that time were inherently risky to use along the pelvic sidewall.
Although uncommon, insulation failure (IF) during minimally invasive surgical procedures can cause electrosurgical injuries that can lead to significant complications. For instance, the resulting burns of these injuries involve a high risk of tissue necrosis and abscess formation that can lead to the perforation of internal organs, such as the bowel, which in turn can result in bacterial contamination of the abdominal cavity.
afe abdominal entry and prevention of retroperitoneal vascular injuries during laparoscopic surgery are the ultimate goals of any laparoscopic surgeon. Dr. Linda Nicoll and colleagues very capably have been able to describe a new technique and technology that prevent almost all retroperitoneal vascular injuries during laparoscopic entry.
