This book is a unique guide and cookbook for operative decision-making techniques in female endoscopic pelvic surgery. It is a landmark in the reality of gynecological endoscopy in 2019. For the full spectrum of gynecological problems requiring surgical intervention, this volume examines the anatomy, preoperative evaluation, surgical strategy, details of techniques and instruments, postoperative management, anticipated results, and possible complications.
Special features for interaction with urologists and general surgeons are detailed. Injuries to adjacent organs, as to bowel, urinary system, and pelvic vessels are also discussed.
This volume is divided into four sections—basics and anatomical aspects of endoscopic surgery, specific gynecological laparoscopic procedures, specific hysteroscopic procedures and complications in laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. After basic aspects in Section 1, the main chapters (Sections 2 and 3) deal with step-by-step laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery. The fourth section explains complication and is important for the management of the gynecologist whose surgical background may not include gastrointestinal or urinary tract surgery.
Although the book should be most useful to gynecologic residents-in-training and practicing gynecologists, it can also be of use to general surgeons who perform gynecologic operations and to all physicians who perform ambulatory gynecologic procedures.
