Abstract

A recent further development in laparoscopic surgery is microlaparoscoopy. The technique is identical to standard 10 mm laparoscopy except for the use of small, 2 mm scopes and trocars. We used this technique in 19 patients treated from June 1998 to February 1999. The advantages of microlaparoscopy are: smaller incisions, less risk of damage to pelvic organs and less postoperative pain. However, the use of microlaparoscopy for operative procedures is limited to simple operations due to the limited field of vision. We urge our colleagues to consider microlaparoscopy whenever diagnostic laparoscopy is needed.
