This book, designed primarily as a practical reference, attempts to provide a clear and pragmatic approach to the understanding of the innovative procedure in abdominal wall lifting with subcutaneous wiring. This sophisticated laparoscopic operation eliminates the conventional complications of the pneumoperitoneum method. The techniques described here do not require the use of air-tight trocars, thus allowing surgeons to operate smoothly as well as safely with better operative view and easier hemostasis, ligation, suturing, etc. This method has the additional advantage of greatly reducing the equipment and expensive disposable instruments used. This book is well illustrated with over 100 high quality and beautiful photographs.
