Single-Port Laparoscopy, NOTES, and Endoluminal Surgery

Description

Minimally invasive surgery has become the standard treatment for many disease processes. In the last decade, numerous studies have demonstrated that laparoscopic approaches to various conditions improved the quality of life with comparable surgical and oncologic outcomes to standard open procedures. Recently, an alternative to conventional laparoscopy or robotic surgery has been developed: laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS), also known as single-port surgery. Single-port laparoscopy is an attempt to further enhance the cosmetic benefits of minimally invasive surgery while minimizing the potential morbidity associated with multiple incisions. The special issue will become an international forum for surgeons and researches to summarize recent developments on instrumentation, technology, and current clinical applications in this innovative field. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Port and access techniques
  • Instrumentation and optics
  • Clinical techniques and outcomes (urology, gynecology, general surgery/bariatric surgery, and colorectal surgery/gastroenterology)
  • Robotic assisted surgery
