Abdominal Access and Principles of Port Position in Laparoscopic Surgery Lecture by Dr R K Mishra
This video demonstration is about Abdominal Access and Principles of Port Position in Laparoscopic Surgery Lecture by Dr R K Mishra. We investigated the optimal position of the laparoscope in relationship to the working ports. Laparoscopic techniques have revolutionized the field of surgery with benefits that include decreased postoperative pain, earlier return to normal activities following surgery, and fewer postoperative complications (eg, wound infection, hernia) compared with open techniques. However, unique complications are associated with gaining access to the abdomen for laparoscopic surgery. Inadvertent bowel injury or major vascular injury is uncommon, but both are potentially life-threatening complications that are most likely to occur during initial access.
