  • Need a better picture
  • Despite these advantages, there are still many drawbacks to a conventional laparoscopy. The surgeon operates looking at a monitor that only shows a two dimensional image. The rigid instruments the surgeon works with are controlled from a distance; they have no wrists, which decreases precision, dexterity and control. As a result, the surgeon will also tire more quickly. Due to the small incision, the participation of the assistant is limited. This makes complex gynecologic operations very difficult, resulting in a higher likelihood that you will receive larger incision.
  • The da Vinci System was designed to overcome the limitations of the traditional open and conventional laparoscopic (minimally invasive) approaches. da Vinci is a state-of-the-art surgical robotic system that provides the extended capabilities necessary to complete your procedure using only a few small incisions. With da Vinci Surgery, the surgeon is seated at a nearby console and always in full control of the robotic instruments. Since the assistant is next to the patient and has direct access to the surgical site, he or she can assist during complex steps of the procedure.
  • Using master controls the System directly translates the surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the instrument tips. Specialized instruments increase dexterity, and help the surgeon to perform a more precise surgery. The da Vinci System cannot be programmed to act on its own, and therefore requires the continuous, direct input of your surgeon.
  • If you remember from before, conventional minimally invasive instruments are rigid and have no wrists. The EndoWrist instruments of the da Vinci System move like a human wrist. This allows the surgeon to control the instruments with the precision necessary to perform complex procedures like lymph node dissection using only a few tiny incisions.

    • Dr. George S Ferzli MD FACS
    • Professor of Surgery - State University of New York (Downstate)
    • Chairman of Surgery - Lutheran Medical Center, New York, USA
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • A three bladed speculum was found in the ruins
    • of Pompeii*.
    • *A roman town buried by a volcano eruption
    • near modern Naples, Italy - 79 AD).
    The first description dates to Hippocrates in Greece, for use of a speculum to visualize the rectum (460–375 BC).
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • 1806: Philip Bozzini developed an instrument called a Lichtleiter (light-guiding instrument)
    • 1853: Antoine Jean Desormeaux used Bozzini ’ s Lichtleiter
    • 1867: Desormeaux used an open tube to examine the genitourinary tract
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • Maximilian Nitze (1848 – 1906)
    • invented the first cystoscope ( Nitze-Leiter cystoscope) using an electrically heated platinum wire for illumination .
    • In 1887, he modified Edison`s light bulb and created the first electrical light bulb for use during urological procedures.
    Original carbon-filament bulb- Thomas Edison
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • 1901: George Kelling, Dresden, Saxony (Germany) performed the 1st experimental laparoscopy, calling it ‘Celioscopy’.
    • Kelling insufflated the abdomen of a dog with filtered air and used a Nitze cystoscope to look inside.
  • Hans Christian Jacobaeus (1879 – 1937)
    • 1910: Swedish internist; first thoracoscopic diagnosis with a cystoscope in a human subject.
    • Treatment of a patient with tubercular intra-thoracic adhesions.
    The Possibilities for Performing Cystoscopy in Examinations of Serous Cavities. Münchner Medizinischen Wochenschrift, 1911
  • Bertram Bernheim
    • 1911 : First laparoscopy at Johns Hopkins
    • 12mm proctoscope into epigastric incision on one of Halstead’s patients to stage pancreatic cancer
    • Bernheim called his procedure ‘organoscopy’
    • Findings confirmed on laparotomy
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • 1920: Zollikofer discovered the benefit of CO 2 gas for insufflation
    • 1938: Janos Veress developed a spring loaded needle for the induction of pneumoperitoneum.
    • After World War II, the development of fiberoptics represented an important step forward for endoscopy
    • 1966: Hopkins rod lens scope & cold light
    • 1974: Dr Harrith M Hasson, MD working in Chicago, proposed a blunt mini-laparotomy which permitted direct visualization of the trocar entrance into the peritoneal cavity. It is popularly known today as Hasson‘s technique.
  • Kurt Semm (1927-2003)
    • Once, while making a slide presentation on ovarian cysts; suddenly the projector was unplugged - with the explanation that “such unethical surgery should not be presented”
    • In 1970, after becoming the chairman of Ob/Gyn at the University of Kiel, his co-workers demanded that he undergo a brain scan because, they said, “only a person with brain damage would perform laparoscopic surgery”
    German Engineer and Gynecologist. Introduced automatic insufflator, thermocoagulation ,loop knots, irrigation device in 1983, performed endoscopic appendectomy as part of A gynecologic procedure.
  • History of Laparoscopy
    • 1985: Dr. Muhe (Prof Dr Med - Böblingen, Germany) performed the first successful laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a human.  However, this was not well publicized until years later. The German Surgical Society rejected Mühe in 1986 after he reported that he had performed the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
  • Laparoscopy Takes Off
    • 1988: 1st Lap cholecystectomy in the USA, Surgiport 1st available
    • 1989: US TV picks up on “Key Hole” surgery EndoClip™ released
    • 1990: Cuschieri (Aberdeen) warns on the explosion of endoscopy
    • 1991: ‘Lap Chole’ is accepted and routine procedure
    • 1992: The National Institutes of Health Consensus Conference concludes that laparoscopic cholecystectomy is now the preferred alternative to open cholecystectomy
  • VERESS NEEDLE
    • 1938 - Janos Veress , of Hungary, developed the spring-loaded needle. to perform therapeutic pneumothorax (TB).
    • Made of surgical stainless steel with a single trap valve. 2mm diameter x 80mm length
    • It consists of an outer cannula with a beveled needle point for cutting through tissues.
  • GAS INSUFFLATION
    • Controlled pressure insufflation of the peritoneal cavity is used to achieve the necessary work space for laparoscopic surgery.
    • Automatic insufflators allow the surgeon to preset the insufflating pressure, and the device supplies gas until the required intra-abdominal pressure is reached.
  • Trocar
    • The trocar has a blade with a shaft and body.
    • The body includes a pointed tip which makes the initial incision in the abdominal wall of the patient.
    • (Trocar diameters range from 2mm-30 mm)
  • Trocars
    • Types:
      • Cutting
        • Pyramidal tipped
        • Flat blade
      • Noncutting
        • Pointed conical
        • Blunt conical
        • Optical
  • Telescope
    • There are three important structural differences in telescope available
    • 1.  6 to 18 rod lens system telescopes are available
    • 2. 0 to 120 degree telescopes are available
    • 3.  1.5 mm to 15 mm of telescopes are available
  • Optic cables
    • These cables are made up of a bundle of optical fibers glass thread swaged at both ends.
    • The fiber size used is usually between 10 to 25 mm in diameter.
    • They have a very high quality of optical transmission, but are fragile.
  • Dissecting & Grasping Forceps
    • Atraumatic
    • KELLY atraumatic
    • Atraumatic, with hollow jaws
    • MANGESHIKAR Grasping Forceps, serrated
  • General instruments

    • Available in 2 mm, 3 mm, 3.5mm, 5 mm and 10 mm sizes, with lengths of 20 cm, 30 cm, 36 cm and 43 cm.
    • Choice of handle styles.
    • Fully rotating 360° sheath.
    • No hidden spaces that can trap operative blood and tissue debris.
  • Scissors
    • HOOK SCISSORS, single action jaws
    • METZENBAUM SCISSORS, curved, length of blades 12-17 mm, widely used as an instrument for mechanical dissection in laparoscopic surgery.   
    • STRAIGHT SCISSOR can give controlled depth of cutting because it has only one moving jaw.
  • TROCAR PLACEMENT BY QUADRANT Thoracic triangle Pelvic triangle 1 2 3 4
  • TROCAR PLACEMENT BY QUADRANT Each quadrant must be addressed from frontal as well as lateral positions. y z x
  • Correct trocar placement should provide direct access to the target organs, an optimal view of the operative field and minimize mental and muscular fatigue.
  • tro-car - [Fr., troisis , three + carre, side] noun a sharp-pointed surgical instrument fitted with a cannula and used especially to insert the cannula into a body cavity cannula - [L., dim of canna, reed] noun a tube that is inserted into a cavity by means of a trocar filling it’s lumen
  • Avoid competing for the same space: Working against the camera and ‘blind spots’ “ Dueling swords” phenomenon (scissoring effect)
  • No obstacle between trocar entry and target To avoid iatrogenic injuries.
  • Avoid the epigastric vessels Saber et al. Safety zones for anterior abdominal wall entry during laparoscopy. Ann Surg 2004; 239:182

  • Laparoscopic US as a good alternative to intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) during laparoscopic cholecystectomy: results of prospective study.
    • 685 IOC (35 cannot canulate cystic duct)
    • 269 LUS (2 steatosis)
    • IOC detected 4.5% common bile duct stones; LUS 6%
    • IOC sensitivity 96.9%, specificity 99.2%
    • LUS sensitivity 100%, specificity 99.6%
    • Results:
    • In this prospective study, LUS has been certainly as effective as IOC as
    • a primary imaging technique for bile duct. It permitted to detect CBDS
    • with a high specificity and sensitivity , and was not followed by an
    • increase in CBDI.

  • Current Trends
    • National Hospital Discharge Survey database 1979 to 2001:
    • Frequency of ERCP vs CBDE
    • Beginning of study: 47,000 CBDE’s per year
    • End of study: 7,000 CBDE vs 43,000 ERCP
    • Complication rates from CBDE
      • 3.4% at beginning of study
      • 17.4% at end of study
      • “ ERCP has replaced the need for most but not all CBDE”
      • “ Both choledocholithiasis treatment algorithms and clinical training paradigms need to account for the rarity of CBDE and high complication rates associated with it, by incorporation of training modules in surgical residencies and advocating referral to centers having expertise in biliary tract operations from surgeons with little CBDE experience”

    • What are recommendations for prevention
    • of chronic pain?
    • Conclusions
    • Level 1B
    • Material reduced meshes have some advantages with respect to longterm discomfort and foreign body sensation in open hernia repair (when only considering chronic pain).
    • Level 2A
    • Prophylactic resection of the ilioinguinal nerve does not reduce the risk of chronic pain after hernia surgery.
    • Level 2B
    • Identification of all inguinal nerves during open hernia surgery may reduce the risk of nerve damage and postoperative chronic groin pain.
    • Treatment of chronic pain
    • Level 3
    • A multidisciplinary approach at a pain clinic is an option for the treatment of chronic post herniorrhaphy pain.
    • Surgical treatment of specific causes of chronic post herniorrhapy pain can be beneficial, such as resection of entrapped nerves, mesh removal in mesh-related pain, removal of endoscopic staples or fixating sutures.

  • Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia:Is the Abdomen a Weakness in the Human Race ?
  • Incidence of Ventral Hernias
    • Around 10% of all laparotomies will generate incisional hernias.
    • The bigger the incision, the higher the risk.
    • ~77% are median hernias
    • ~17% are lateral hernias
    • ~6% are iliac hernias
    • Direct closure have a high recurrences incidence (50%). The rate
    • increases (58%) with repair of recurrent hernias.
    • Significant reduction in recurrences is achieved when meshes are used.

  • Prospective Clinical Trial of Factors Predicting the Early Development of Incisional Hernia after Midline Laparotomy
    • 6 months analysis after operation of numerous demographic, clinical, treatment and outcomes-related peri-operative factors to determine statistical association with development of incisional hernia.
    • Four covariates independently predictive of incisional hernia were studied: Body mass index (BMI) > 24.4kg/m2 ; fascial suture to incision ratio (SIR) < 4.2 ; deep surgical site, deep space, or organ infection (SSI ); and time to suture removal or complete epithelialization >16 days (TIME).
    • Conclusion: The hernia risk scoring system equation [p(%) = 32(SIR) + 30(SSI) + 9(TIME) + 2(BMI)] provided accurate estimates of incisional hernia according to stratified risk groups based on total score: low (0 to 5 points), 1.0%; moderate (6 to 15 points), 9.7%; increased (16 to 50 points), 30.2%; and markedly increased (>50 points), 73.1%

    • 1955- Friedman
      • 3 patients with poorly control DM
      • 3-4 days after subtotal gastrectomy all 3 pateints showed an improvement in their DM
        • Occurred sooner than associated weight loss
        • Patients later regained their weight without an associated loss of glucose control or glycosuria
    • Mingrone 1977 : Case report
      • Young, non obese woman with DM who underwent BPD for chylomicronemia
      • Plasma insulin and blood glucose levels normalized within 3 months
    • Bittner –1981- subtotal gastrectomy and gastrointestinal reconstructions that excluded duodenal passage (B2 and RYGB
      • Lowered plasma glucose and insulin
      • Conclusion: Plasma glucose and insulin fall rapidly post-operatively
        • antidiabetic medications can be reduced or stopped shortly after gastrointestinal bypass interventions

      • Double blind study: 16 patients assigned to LRYGBP and 16 Pts to LSG
      • Patients reevaluated on the 1st, 3rd, 6th, and 12th mos
      • Results:
        • No change in ghrelin levels after LRYGBP Significant decrease in ghrelin after LSG ( P < 0.0001)
        • Fasting PYY levels increased after either surgical procedure ( P <= 0.001)
        • Appetite decreased in both groups but to a greater extend after LSG

    • “ PYY levels increased similarly after either procedure.
    • The markedly reduced ghrelin levels in addition to increased
    • PYY levels after LSG, are associated with greater appetite
    • suppression and excess weight loss compared with LRYGBP”

    • A ll subjects consistently felt relief from fatigue, pain and/or numbness in the extremities, polyuria, and polydypsia.
    • Clinical resolution was obtained for one patient, and the preoperative diabetic medication requirements decreased for most of the other patients.
    • The subjects demonstrated an overall improved HbA1c (from 9.4% to 8.5%) and fasting blood glucose level (from 209 to 154 mg/dl).
