Robotic Surgery for Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair

This book is a surgical manual, intended to present and discuss the use of robotic surgery for abdominal wall hernia repair. It comprises the most important surgical approaches in the field, presenting step by step procedures in a clear and didactic way. Abdominal wall hernias are very common conditions, easily identifiable in clinical practice and that usually require a surgical intervention as treatment. However, the choice for the right surgical procedure to treat those conditions may vary, provided the diversity on possible techniques, clinical presentations and complexity. Robotic surgery has emerged in recent years as an important tool to increase the number of surgical approaches for the surgeon who faces abdominal wall hernias. Video-assisted and robotic surgery may represent a consistent improvement in options available for the surgeon involved in wall hernia repair. Current robotic surgical techniques present several of the benefits of common laparoscopic surgery features (such as low invasiveness and fast recovery), and adds some other specific benefits, such as more dynamic and precise movements and a much better view of the operatory field. Robotic Surgery for Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair is intended to help surgeons to manage this disease from another point of view and to choose the best procedures in each case, pushing medical practice to another level of decisions, investigation and follow up, considering the use of new technologies in robotic surgery. It intends to be a reference manual to medical practitioners who has surgical skills in their backgrounds, but that are not familiar with the use of minimally invasive procedures for abdominal wall complex defects.

Laparoscopic and Robotic Incisional Hernia Repair

The field of hernia repair, in general, has evolved over the last 25 years. The changes that have followed the introduction of this technique have continued and have even increased in the last few years. There is a need to inform the practicing general surgeon about these advances. This text will seek to present the most up to date and important considerations to date. The book will open with a brief history and evolution of the technology surrounding the repair of incisional and ventral hernias laparoscopically and include the introduction of the robotic technology. Prosthetic biomaterials are an integral part of the successful repair of hernias and a comprehensive presentation of these products will be presented. Preoperative preparation of the patient has now been recognized as a method to improve outcomes in these patients and will be addressed.Technical aspects of the repair of these hernias will then follow in an orderly fashion to include the general considerations of the methodology. The “best practices” of these methods will be presented with appropriate figures and illustrations. The management of difficult situations as well as expected outcomes will be discussed. It is the intent of this text that any surgeon interested in the use of the minimally invasive techniques to repair the incisional and ventral hernias of the abdominal wall will have this resource presenting current opinions and methods. The “thought leaders” in these methods will be the authors of these chapters. This title differs from the Springer related title Novitsky, Hernia Surgery. The Novinsky is more comprehensive at 530 pages. It contains many more illustrations and video. The LeBlanc focuses on Laparoscopic and Robotic Hernia surgery with an estimated page count of 300-350. The LeBlanc presents current opinions of the thought leaders. Therefore, the subtitle: Current Considerations.

The SAGES Manual of Robotic Surgery

The SAGES Manual of Robotic Surgery

The SAGES Manual of Robotic Surgery is designed to present a comprehensive approach to various applications of surgical techniques and procedures currently performed with the robotic surgical platform. The Manual also aligns with the new SAGES UNIVERSITY MASTERS Program. The Manual supplements the Robotic Surgery Pathway from Competency to Proficiency to Mastery. Whether it’s for Biliary, Hernia, Colon, Foregut or Bariatric, the key technical steps for the anchoring robotic procedures are highlighted in detail as well as what the reader needs to know to successfully submit a video clip to the SAGES Facebook Channels for technical feedback. The initial chapters are dedicated to the anchoring procedures needed to successfully navigate through the Masters Program. Subsequent chapters then address preliminary issues faced by surgeons and staff , such as training and credentialing, as well as instrumentation and platforms commonly used for these procedures. Individual chapters will then focus on specifi c disease processes and the robotic applications for those procedures

This atlas demonstrates how to perform each available extraperitoneal hernia repair via a set of high-quality annotated images showing step-by-step guidance on how to perform the surgery. Robotic extraperitoneal hernia procedures are considered great teaching procedures especially with a dual teaching console. The book bridges the gap between traditional hernia and laparoscopic hernia texts by combining both approaches to create a book with a unique visual approach. Preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative figures are integrated to highlight the importance of these step-by-step procedures, enhance skill and efficiency, and avoid surgical pitfalls. Detailed descriptive figures accompany step-by-step instructions and include specific anatomical annotations that describe the anatomy and layers of the abdominal wall during hernia procedures. Robotic Hernia Surgery provides a comprehensive, insightful and state-of-art review of this field, and serves as a valuable resource for surgeons, surgeons in training, and students with an interest in hernia and robotic hernia surgery.

This book is a comprehensive guide to the surgical repair of inguinal and abdominal wall hernias that not only describes all potential approaches, but also places them in the context of the anatomy of the region, the pathology, and the advances in scientific knowledge over the past decade. It documents in detail the individual techniques applicable in each region (inguinal, femoral, and ventral), highlighting tips and tricks and focusing on indications, potential complications, and outcomes. In addition, it presents cases of incisional hernia and examines less frequent and rare cases and complex situations. Written for surgeons from around the globe, it includes procedures used in wealthy, developed countries and those without mesh more commonly employed in developing countries. With a format designed to facilitate use in daily practice, it is invaluable for residents seeking step-by-step guidance on procedures ranging from repair of simple inguinal hernias to complex reconstruction; for general surgeons who frequently perform hernia repairs; and for hernia specialists aiming to achieve optimal results. It also appeals to researchers with an interest in the scientific background to hernia surgery.
