Laparoscopy, also known as diagnostic laparoscopy, is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure. Only small incisions are made.
Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor.
Laparoscopic procedures have a number of advantages, given the fact that they result in cosmetic or negligible scars, less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stay, early mobilization and resumption of daily activities, less internal scarring when the procedure is performed. As this method is minimally invasive, less adhesions are made and there is minimal tissue handling. It doesn’t really have too many disadvantages as such. Laparoscopy is a very popular method of diagnosis and surgery these days which it wouldn’t have been if there were disadvantages.
