WHAT IS LAPAROSCOPY (PERITONEOSCOPY) TEST?

WHAT IS LAPAROSCOPY (PERITONEOSCOPY) TEST?

Direct inspection of the surfaces of the internal organs such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, fallopian tubes, ovaries, uterus, and lymph nodes by use of a fiberoptic telescope inserted transabdominally into the abdominal cavity. Diagnostic laparoscopy prevents unnecessary surgical laparotomies by providing direct visualization inside of the abdominal cavity with a minimally invasive procedure. Surgical procedures such as cholecystectomy, biopsy, or tubal ligation may be performed by means of laparoscopy. Use of electronic power morcellators is a newer method for removal of tissue that reduces the risk of postprocedure hernia by minimizing fascia damage but carries with it higher risk for internal organ damage. Other advances in technology include 3-dimensional views and high-resolution digital images.
