Endoscopic surgery in recent yearsincredibly popular. And they have gained love and respect not only from medical workers, but also from the patients themselves. This is due primarily to the fact that such surgical interventions have a number of advantages over classical ones.
Endoscopic operations have severalFeatures that made it possible to distinguish this type of surgical intervention in a separate group. First of all, it should be noted that a lot of complicated equipment is used here. As a result, operating surgeons must have certain skills to work with it.
Another distinguishing feature of this typesurgical interventions is the fact that they can not be carried out in all cases. Sometimes the only possibility to solve this or that problem remains a cavity operation.
Endoscopic surgery: the main advantages
Probably not the most important advantage of this speciessurgical interventions is its really low traumatism. The fact is that on the human body there are only three very small incisions. The absence of significant damage contributes to the speedy recovery and minimization of the consequences of surgical intervention. As a result, if a person, for example, is diagnosed with "appendicitis," an endoscopic operation performed in a timely manner will allow him to return to normal life as soon as possible.
In addition, such an operation - in view of its lowtraumatism - can be carried out in patients who are contraindicated with hollow intervention. This is a very important point, because often it is necessary to refuse the surgical method of treatment precisely because it is dangerous for human health. Endoscopic surgery does not cause such harm, and therefore can be used to help weakened patients.
Despite all its advantages, endoscopic operations are not used universally. This is due to the fact that they have a number of disadvantages.
First of all, it is worth noting the high cost,which is "famous" for endoscopic surgery. The price, of course, depends on the specific surgical intervention. The cost of the most difficult of them often exceeds the mark of 100,000 rubles. As for more simple operations, the price for them can fluctuate within the limits of 10 000 to 30 000 rubles.
In addition to the high cost, such an operation isstill quite difficult. The fact is that not every surgeon is able to manage endoscopic instruments, but only the one who passed the appropriate training.
Enumerating the shortcomings of this operation, one shouldit is necessary to note the fact that their use is not always possible. It is not possible to use such a low-traumatic method of surgical intervention in cases when there is an adhesion process in the area of the proposed operation. The fact is that it prevents the passage of endoscopic instruments.
