Repair of simple and complex abdominal hernias by the laparoscopic technique is now the method of choice in many centres. Laparoscopic repair offers equivalent outcomes to open repair, with the additional benefits of greater patient satisfaction and reduced hospitalization. For some hernias, notably incisional and hiatal, the outcome appears to be superior using the minimally invasive technique.

This book, authored by an international team of leading surgeons in the field of hernia repair, gives a definitive guide to appropriate patient selection and operative technique. The introductory section delivers a useful, illustrated account of instrumentation, biomaterials and mesh fixation. Subsequent sections provide detailed information about inguinal, incisional and hiatal herniorraphy, including four chapters devoted to the use of laparoscopy in the pediatric patient. Robotics and the socio-economic aspects of hernia surgery are also discussed.

- The book gives in-depth coverage of each surgical procedure, including essential background information, relevant anatomy, preoperative evaluation of the patient, choice of instrumentation and biomaterials, and cosmetic results.

- Each procedure is illustrated with a step-by-step series of high-quality laparoscopic photographs, allowing the reader to follow the sequence of the operation.

- The recognition and management of complications is highlighted, and successful postoperative management techniques are also considered.

Instructional, descriptive and illustrated in colour throughout, this unrivalled operative guide offers a complete analysis of each of the current technologies, and is an invaluable source of information for practicing and trainee surgeons.

  • High-quality illustration - acts as a guide to performing each procedure
  • Tips and pitfalls included - helps trainee master operation
  • Complications and their management highlighted - fail-safe resource to get surgeon out of trouble
