"The introduction of endoscopic surgery to gynecological oncology is now ten years old. The movement started in France and grew to the United States, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have been some of the early investigators in the field. We are also blessed that virtually all the early pioneers in this pursuit have been willing to contribute to this text. As with any oncology text, there is a great variation in each authors's philosophies on management. Laparoscopy aside, there is no universal consenus on the management of any gynecologic malignancy. The introduction of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology only compounds an already complex area, and of course makes a controversial topic even more so. We respect these individual and regional philosophic differences and encourage the reader of this text to read between the lines."

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.
