Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to this session on laparoscopic extracorporeal knots. Today, I will be explaining and demonstrating the use of the Meltzer knot, Roders knot, and Mishra knot, which are commonly used by surgeons, gynecologists, and urologists in the field of minimal access surgery.
Laparoscopic extracorporeal knots are used to secure sutures and ligatures during laparoscopic procedures. These knots are tied outside of the body and then inserted into the abdomen through a port or small incision.
The Meltzer knot is a simple and reliable knot that is easy to tie and has a low risk of slipping. It is commonly used in procedures such as laparoscopic cholecystectomy and laparoscopic appendectomy.
The Roders knot is a more complex knot that requires greater dexterity and skill to tie. It is commonly used in procedures such as laparoscopic hernia repair and laparoscopic nephrectomy.
The Mishra knot is a hybrid knot that combines the advantages of both the Meltzer and Roders knots. It is a secure and reliable knot that can be tied quickly and easily, making it ideal for use in a wide range of laparoscopic procedures.
To demonstrate the use of these knots, I will be performing a laparoscopic procedure and showing you how to tie each knot step by step. I will also be providing tips and tricks on how to achieve the best results with each knot, including how to avoid knot slippage and how to achieve optimal tension.
By the end of this session, you will have a comprehensive understanding of laparoscopic extracorporeal knots and be equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to tie these knots safely and effectively in your own practice.
Thank you for your attention, and I look forward to working with you as we explore the world of minimal access surgery together.
