Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen and pelvis without having to make large incisions in the skin and abdominal wall. To do this, he uses fine instruments and a camera.

This procedure is also known as laparoscopy, minimally invasive surgery or even endosurgery. It is performed in men preferentially to any other intervention.

The advantages :

  • Particularly reduced incision compared to traditional method
  • Very wide field of vision and examination of the entire abdomen without a large opening
  • Less pain because less traction on the ovarian pedicles and smaller skin incisions
  • Safety increased by better visibility (x10) on the surgical site itself (access, image enlargement)
  • Return to normal activity faster (activity reduced by 62% with opening No; by 25% after laparoscopy)
  • Less need for collar or wound protection
  • Reduced risk of post-surgical dehiscence or hernia
  • Reduced risk of infection due to limited openings
  • “like in humans”

Indication :

  • Oophorectomy
  • Ovariohysterectomy (video assistance)
  • Cryptorchidism
  • Intestinal EC (video assistance)
  • Cystotomy (video assistance)
  • Gastropexy of convenience (assisted or not)
  • Exploration and biopsy of liver, spleen, pancreas, intestine (assisted or not), with a coagulation test)
