All gynaecologists now perform laparoscopic procedures and all see and treat some cancer patients. This book combines two of the hottest areas in surgery at present, minimally invasive techniques and cancer in women. The editors and contributors are internationally recognised leaders in the field, from France and the US, with the honorable exceptions of Victor Gomel, from Canada and John Monaghan, both established authors in their own right. Amongst other contributors, Kadar, Hutton, Reich, Dubuisson and Nezhat are also recognised within the field. The book is directed to those coming to the use of these techniques in this area for the first time. Thus the first section covers laparoscopy and applied laparoscopic techniques, instrumentation complications and training. Part II covers diagnostic and staging laparoscopy and Part III general pelvic procedures including simple and radical hysterectomy, bowel surgery and appendectomy. Part IV underlines that this is still a new and controversial area, chapters being given to tumour, mismanagement, undertreatment and other complications. Finally the place of laparoscopic surgery in the staging and/or surgical treatment of gynaecologic cancers is reviewed problem by problem; algorithms for the management of gynaecologic cancers, using laparoscopic staging or surgical therapy are included.
