Lap anatomy and complications2012 Lap anatomy and complications2012 Presentation Transcript

  • LAPAROSCOPIC  SURGERY   COMPLICATIONS   Jim  Bentley  
  • Laparoscopic  Complications   §  Often  considered  as  minimally  invasive   surgery  but  risk  is  not.   §  Has  specific  risks  and  complications   §  Most  complications  occur  during  the  setup   phase  (60-­‐75%)   §  Complications  8.9%  laparoscopy  vs.  15.2%   laparotomy  (metaanalysis)  
  • Complications   §  Generally  safe  but  does  have  mortality   (0.03%-­‐0.49%)   §  In  gynecology  LAVH  most  commonly   associated  with  complications   §  Adnexal  surgery  next   §  Generally  more  complex  surgery/  earlier  on  a   learning  curve  will  lead  to  more  complications  
  • Complications     §  Injury  to  adjacent  organs   §  Bleeding  from  solid  organs  (liver  and  spleen)   §  Vascular  injuries   §  Puncture/perforation/cauterization  of  the   bowel   §  Transection/perforation  of  bile  ducts   §  Perforation  of  the  bladder   §  Puncture/perforation  of  the  uterus   §  Complications  of  abdominal  access   §  Port  site  hernia   §  Wound  infection   §  Also  see  Injury  to  adjacent  organs   §  Complications  of  specimen  removal   §  Port  site  recurrence  of  cancer   §  Splenosis   §  Endometriosis   §  Complications  of  the  pneumoperitoneum   §  Pneumothorax   §  Pneumomediastinum   §  Gas  embolus   §  Subcutaneous  emphysema  
  • Patient  risk  factors   §  Previous  abdominal  or  pelvic  surgery   §  Previous  intra-­‐abdominal  or  pelvic  disease   process(infection,  neoplasia,  inflammation)   §  Obesity   §  Thinness   §  Anticoagulation  
  • Set-­‐Up  Phase   §  Positioning   §  Catheter   §  NG  tube   §  Access  
  • SOGC  Laparoscopy  Guideline  
  • SOGC  Guideline   §  LUQ  entry  considered  with  adhesions/  surgery   §  Veress  needle  tests  don’t  work;  do  not  waggle   §  Attach  the  CO2  as  pressure  <  10  mm  Hg  is  indicative  of  being  in   cavity   §  Elevation  is  not  helpful   §  Vary  angle  according  to  BMI   §  Use  pressure  and  not  volume  to  determine  adequacy  of   insufflation;  high  pressures  do  not  effect  healthy  women   §  May  use  Hassan  technique  but  not  done  by  Gyn;  Open=veress   §  Direct  insertion  OK   §  Shielded  trocars  OK   §  Radially  expanding  trocars  not  recommended   §  Visual  entry  OK  but  not  superior  
  • Positioning   §  Patient  safety   §  Comfort  for  surgeon   and  assistants   §  Provide  access  for   surgery   §  Use  moveable  stirrups   §  Arms  at  side  (wrapped)   §  Bed  that  can  be   lowered  (45  cm  of   floor)
