Abstract

The evolution of new hospital-admission models and the change from a prolonged to a reduced stay, e.g., for a week following surgery, or to same-day surgery, is the result of enormous technological progress, including surgical and anaesthesia techniques, and of the greater availability of a range of therapeutic devices. The latter has stimulated the interest of the medical industry in the development of new materials that support the aim of current surgery to be minimally invasive.
