Abstract
The application of laser light and laparoscopy attenuates operative trauma owing to the use of small incisions for introducing the trochars necessary for conveying the surgical instruments and fiber optics which allow for precise cutting and coagulation of small vessels under control of the image on a TV monitor. The present, most remarkable development of laparoscopic surgery is due to the fascination of physicians and patients by this procedure. The method enables the physician to operate with great precision and to take advantage of the most recent attainments of electronics and laser technique, as well as of his own ability. The patients profit by attenuation of postoperative pain, limitation of the probability of infection, reduced blood loss, decreased number of postoperative complications, shortening of the hospitalization period, and rapid return to physical fitness and work.
