What is Laparoscopic Surgery?

Laparoscopy is a type of surgical procedure that allows a surgeon to access the inside of the abdomen (tummy) and pelvis without having to make large incisions in the skin. This procedure is also known as keyhole surgery or minimally invasive surgery. Large incisions can be avoided during laparoscopy because the surgeon uses an instrument called a laparoscope. This is a small tube that has a light source and a camera, which relays images of the inside of the abdomen or pelvis to a television monitor.

How Safe is Laproscopic Surgery?

Laparoscopy is a commonly performed procedure and serious complications are rare. 

Minor complications

Minor complications are estimated to occur in 1 or 2 out of every 100 cases following laparoscopy. They include: 

  • infection 
  • minor bleeding and bruising around the incision 
  • feeling sick and vomiting 

Serious complications

Serious complications after laparoscopy are estimated to occur in 1 out of every 1,000 cases. They include: 

  • damage to an organ, such as your bowel or bladder, which could result in the loss of organ function 
  • damage to a major artery 
  • complications arising from the use of carbon dioxide during the procedure, such as the gas bubbles entering your veins or arteries 
  • a serious allergic reactionto thegeneral anaesthetic 
  • a blood clot developing in a vein

How Laparoscopic surgery is performed?

Laparoscopy is performed undergeneral anaesthetic, so you’ll be unconscious during the procedure and have no memory of it. You can often go home on the same day. During laparoscopy, the surgeon makes a small cut (incision) of around 1 to 1.5cm (0.4 to 0.6 inches), usually near your belly button. A tube is inserted through the incision, and carbon dioxide gas is pumped through the tube to inflate your tummy (abdomen). Inflating your abdomen allows the surgeon to see your organs more clearly and gives them more room to work. A laparoscope is then inserted through this tube. The laparoscope relays images to a television monitor in the operating theatre, giving the surgeon a clear view of the whole area. 

Indicative Laparoscopic Surgery Picture

If the laparoscopy is used to carry out a surgical treatment, such as removing your appendix, further incisions will be made in your abdomen. Small, surgical instruments can be inserted through these incisions, and the surgeon can guide them to the right place using the view from the laparoscope. Once in place, the instruments can be used to carry out the required treatment. After the procedure, the carbon dioxide is let out of your abdomen, the incisions are closed using stitches or clips and a dressing is applied.
