    • INDICATIONS  FOR  LAPAROSCOPY   IN  GYNECOLOGY   James  Bentley   Professor  Department  of  Obstetrics  and  Gynecology     Thanks:  Katharina  Kieser   Associate  Professor   Department  of  Obstetrics  and  Gynecology

    • Introduction   •  Surgical  approach  in  gynecology  has  changed   significantly  in  the  last  20  years   •  Laparoscopy  has  become  the  preferred  approach   •  1980’s   •  Diagnostic  Laparoscopy   •  Tubal  Ligation   •  Endometriosis  ablation   •  2010   •  Operative  laparoscopy   •  Advanced  Laparoscopy  
    • Objectives   •  Review  the  role  of  laparoscopy  in  gynecology   •   To  review  indications  for  Total  Laparoscopic   Hysterectomy   •   To  review  port  placement   •   To  review  preop  &  postop  care  
    • Laparoscopic  Indications   §  Ectopic  pregnancy   §  Adnexal  Mass/  Ovarian  cyst   §  Fibroid  surgery   §  Hysterectomy   §  Infertility  tubal  surgery   §  Urogynecological  surgery   §  Cancer  
    • Barriers  to  laparoscopy   §  Disease   ú  Concern  with  cancer      Large  masses      Port  site  mets   ú  Large  fibroids   §  Patient  factors   ú  Patient  obesity   ú  Comorbidities   ú  Unstable  patient  i.e.  bleeding  ectopic   §  Surgical  factors   ú  Training/  skill/  experience   ú  Anaesthesia   §  Equipment   ú  Access  to  energy  sources   ú  Retrieval  bags/  uterine  manipulators  
    • Is  there  a  role  for  Open   surgery?   §  Laparoscopy   ú  Advantages  of  early  discharge   ú  Lower  complications   ú  Better  cosmetic  appearance   §  The  first  approach  should  be  laparoscopic   when  surgery  is  indicated   §  BUT  the  most  minimally  invasive   hysterectomy  is  a  vaginal  hysterectomy  
    • Contraindications  to   laparoscopy   §  Previous  abdominal  surgery-­‐  No   §  Bowel  obstruction-­‐Probably  OK   §  Ruptured  ectopic-­‐  OK  after  resuscitation   §  Pregnancy-­‐open  laparoscopy  OK   §  Cancer  -­‐  no  good  evidence  that  laparoscopy   causes  problems  with  spread  
    • Patient  risk  factors   §  Obesity-­‐  only  a  problem  in  morbid  obesity   §  Age-­‐  No  problems   §  Previous  abdominal  surgery   §  Increased  risk  of  adhesions-­‐  but  use  open   technique,  LUQ  entry  
    • Hysterectomy:  Definitions   •  Laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) • Vaginal hysterectomy that is assisted by laparoscopy; the laparoscopic procedures may include adnexectomy and the superior portions of the hysterectomy, but not ligation of the uterine vessels. •  Vaginally assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy (VALH) • Hysterectomy that is performed mostly laparoscopically, including ligation of the uterine vessels. The vaginal portion consists of only the vaginal incision and repair. •  Laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy (LSH) • Hysterectomy that is performed completely by laparoscope; however, the uterine corpus is amputated from the cervix at the level of the isthmus, and the cervical stump will remain in situ. •  Total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) • Abdominal hysterectomy that is performed completely by laparoscopy with no vaginal component. The vaginal cuff is closed via the laparoscope. Te Linde’s Operative Gynecology, ch 32C,p 764
