About this book


Since its publication in 1998, The SAGES Manual: Fundamentals of Laparoscopic and GI Endoscopy has become a true classic. Now, in its new second edition, the manual continues to be a comprehensive, concise and timely contribution to the field of minimally invasive surgery. The text provides an authoritative synopsis of the major minimally invasive procedures in an easy-to-read outline format. The text has been fully revised with new chapters added to reflect advances in the field. The new edition now features laparoscopy, endoscopy and a new section on thoracoscopy. The laparosopic section reviews the important basics of laparoscopic surgery, including general principles, diagnostic laparoscopy and biopsy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration, laparoscopic gastric surgery, procedures on the small inestine, appendix and colon, the pancreas, spleen and retroperintoneum, hernia repair, and pediatric laparoscopy. The endoscopic section reviews gastrointesinal endoscopy for the general surgeon. It begins with an overview of the general principles of flexible endoscopy, and continues to discuss such procedures as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, choledochostomy, colonoscopy, and pediatric endoscopy. The thoracoscopy section covers the basic principles of thoracoscopic surgery, including patient preparation and positioning, exploratory thoracoscopy for staging malignancies, esophagomyotomy, and operations for esophageal diverticula. New to the second edition are chapters on laparoscopic bariatric surgery, using hand-assisted devices in laparoscopy, and a new set of chapters on thoracoscopy. 50 new illustrations complement the text. A must-have reference for the general surgery resident or practicing surgeon.
