Laparoscopic Surgery is a kind of minimal invasive surgery also called keyhole surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations in the abdomen are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5-1.5cm) as compared to larger incisions that are often used in traditional surgical procedures. Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities, whereas keyhole surgery performed on the thoracic or chest cavity is called thoracoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery belong to the broader field of endoscopy.

Laparoscopic surgeries are indicated in acute abdominal pain like Right lower abdominal pain (R/O Gynaecological pathology), Peritonitis, mesenteric ischemia, draining intrabdominal abscess (not amenable to image guided drainage), A calculus cholecystitis, small bowel obstruction, fever of unknown origin, gastro intestinal haemorrhage of unexplained etiology. It is also useful in blunt abdominal trauma as well as penetrating trauma to exclude peritoneal penetration and to evaluate diaphragmatic injuries. Listed below are the advanced (key hole) surgeries done with the help of laparoscope and fine instruments to achieve the desired results but ensures less post operative discomfort, faster recovery and early return to work.

Emergency Laparoscopy: Emergency Laparoscopic Surgery gives us important information in a minimally traumatic way. Laparoscopic Surgery helps doctors to use specially designed instruments to enter into the abdominal cavity, visualise all the internal structures and perform simple and complex operations.

Emergency laparoscopy is done in acute painful abdomen which required urgent surgerical intervention. It can also be done in abdominal trauma. Depending on the findings, the operation is completed laparoscopically or changed to conventional operation.
