The most complete presentation of basic and advanced laparoscopic techniques available, due to its integration of procedures from general surgery and other subspecialities. Enhanced by over 750 illustrations (113 of them in full colour) and written by no less than 132 international, interdisciplinary experts, this definitive reference covers all aspects of this still new and expanding technique. Four main sections deal with: basic laparoscopy; laparoscopy and thoracoscopy in general surgery; laparoscopy in surgical subspecialities (gynaecology, urology, angioscopy); plus the technological aspects of laparoscopy. Throughout this authoritative volume, the surgeon will find in-depth reviews of the literature and extensive clinical and scientific data on the rationale for using laparoscopic procedures.
Certain to become a standard in the field.
