Retroperitoneal Robotic Surgery and Laparoscopic Surgeryprovides urologists an easy way to learn the extraperitoneal alternative when performing laparoscopic or robot assisted procedures. There are significant technical differences between intra-peritoneal and retroperitoneal surgery. There are occasions, particularly with a history of prior intra-abdominal surgeries, when the retroperitoneal route is not only less invasive, but provides an efficient and effective way of performing the operation.
This book provides a step-by-step guide of all extraperitoneal laparoscopic and robot assisted procedures. All chapters include an abstract and a conclusion, and the body of each chapter consists of indication and contraindication, preoperative preparation, operative steps, post operative management, and complications.
Retroperitoneal Robotic Surgery and Laparoscopic Surgery supports novices in making the transition from open extraperitoneal to laparoscopic or robotic extraperitoneal procedures. This book also assists the intermediate and advanced laparoscopist to further expand their skills working in the extraperitoneal space.
