SUMMARY

Laparoscopy continues to revolutionize the treatment and mangement of surgical disease. This third Edition of Current Review of Laparoscopy covers many new frontiers of laparoscopic surgery, discusses the more established procedures, and examines several controversies that have evolved since the publication of the second edition. It also provides a firm knowledge base for surgeons, giving equal time to both simple and complex procedures, addressing topics such as two-handed surgical technique, intracorporeal suturing and knot tying, intricate dissection, and control of large vessels. Also discussed are the operating room of the future, cost considerations, and regulatory issues. Current Review of Laparoscopy is a timely, well-reasoned, and informative text on the present state of the art of laparoscopic surgery
