What is a Laparoscopy?
A Laparoscopy is a modern surgical technique in which a specialized camera, along with other specialized tools, are inserted into the abdomen through small holes 0.5-1.5 mm in diameter and the abdomen is filled with carbon dioxide. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and the surgeon performs the operation through a screen that projects the intra-abdominal organs.
Advantages over classic surgery are:
- Less recovery time after surgery
- Less pain due to short incision length
- Less bleeding
Laparoscopic surgeries can be:
- Οvarian cyst
- Hose due to hydrothorax: precedes IVF because you increase the chances of pregnancy and reduce miscarriage
- Tubal ligation for contraception
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Endometriosis: is the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus (in the ovary, intra-abdominal space). It negatively affects fertility but does not prevent all women from conceiving. Cauterization of endometriosis foci in combination with drug therapy gives good results.
- Solution of intra-abdominal adhesions
- Trumpet patency control
- Parathyroid cysts
- Auxiliary, in hysteroscopic surgeries
