Talamini, Mark A.
In 42 chapters, Talamini (surgery, U. of California, San Diego) and an international group of practitioners explain techniques used in laparoscopic surgery of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts, accessory organs, and retroperitoneum, as well as aortic aneurysms, breast ductoscopy, and the evaluation of abdominal trauma. Principles discussed are anesthesia and patient positioning, examination, suturing, biopsy, port site closure, ultrasound, technical issues, and telemedicine. A sampling of procedures includes surgery for empyema, gastroesophageal reflux, cancer, gastric bypass, liver and pancreatic resection, Crohn's disease, appendectomy, splenectomy, nephrectomy, and hernias. Incorporated are illustrations, photos, and tables of instruments needed for each procedure. The CD-ROM contains 21 video segments of the techniques and procedures in the book. The volume is modeled after the Current Surgical Therapy series.
