Laparoscopic (keyhole) hysterectomy is now the preferred method for removing organs and surrounding tissues of the reproductive system. It is less invasive than a vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy because the incisions that are made are much smaller, meaning smaller wounds and faster recovery time (NHS Choices).
This atlas is a concise guide to the technique of total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Beginning with an introduction to the procedure and instruments used, the following chapters provide step by step guidance on the process, from how to begin to the prevention and management of complications that may occur. A complete chapter is dedicated to the role of anaesthesia.
