First, let's know more about,
- Laparoscopy, a surgery done with the help of an instrument called a laparoscope. It is a diagnostic procedure to examine the abdominal and pelvic region of the patient.
- Laparoscopy involves sending a high-resolution camera through a small tube so that the doctor can have a clear view of the abnormality inside. This real-time viewing of the pelvic region helps the doctor quickly determine the issue and perform an operative procedure.
- In general, an uncomplicated laparoscopic surgery takes no more than 30 to 60 minutes, and the patient can be discharged in a few hours after the surgery.
When Is Laparoscopy Recommended?
Experts suggest laparoscopic surgery to diagnose and treat the following conditions:
- Pelvic pain or mass formation
- Abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pelvic region
- Inability to conceive
- Tubal pregnancy
- Ovarian cyst or tumor
- Scarring from pelvic infection
Now, let's discuss the,
Steps of Laparoscopic Surgery
The doctor will ask the patient to take some tests like ultrasound, CT scan, blood analysis, urinalysis, and possible chest X-ray or electrocardiogram. These will help the doctor to analyze the problem in depth.
The ultrasound or CT scan is used to determine the severity. The surgeon can use these diagnostics to place the needle in the abdomen during the procedure. It is known as ultrasound or CT-guided needle biopsy.
The patient is then given sedatives or anaesthetics before the surgery. Usually, surgeons administer general anaesthesia so that the patient can remain unconscious throughout the surgery.
3. Surgery Preparation
Before the surgery and after the sedation process, a breathing tube is passed down the throat for the patient to breathe in case of windpipe collapse due to the effects of anaesthetics.
Also, a catheter is placed in the urinary bladder. A catheter is a soft hollow tube passed down to a drainage bag. The catheter helps to drain out the bladder during the surgery.
The surgeon makes a small incision (size 1 to 1.5 cm) in the underbelly region. Further, the surgeon inserts a needle or hollow tube termed a trocar into the incision. Then, carbon dioxide gas is transferred through the trocar to bloat the pelvic region so that it bloats the area and makes it easier for the surgeon to work on and view inside.
Finally, the surgeon passes a tiny camera (laparoscope) down the trocar to see inside the pelvic region. If necessary, the surgeon also makes few more incisions to view the internal organs better.
In gynaecologic laparoscopy, a dye may be injected into the cervix so the surgeon can clearly view the fallopian tubes.
