Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery (abbreviated as MIC) uses a very small incision to penetrate the body cavity of the chest (thoracoscopy) and abdominal cavity (laparoscopy) to insert cameras, light sources, and surgical instruments, and a surgical video display in the body cavity below perform. In principle, every patient from newborns to adolescents can undergo minimally invasive surgery in the abdominal cavity or in the chest. Treatment ranges from congenital breast and abdominal deformities (liver / gallbladder, appendix, rectum) to malformations of the urinary system and tumor diseases (some tumors).

Compared to operations with large incisions, the advantages of endoscopy are known as minimally invasive surgery. However, the surgeon also has limitations here: the conventional mechanical power transmission with cables or push rods is very low, and this friction is high, especially when using flexible or angled instruments. It can damage the interface and deeper tissue layers. Nowadays, surgical interventions with minimal pressure on the patient can be performed percutaneously (minimally invasive surgery, MIS) or through natural body orifices (endoscopic surgery on the natural port). These surgical techniques bring enormous benefits to the patient and at the same time pose great challenges for surgeons and medical technology.

So far, the new concepts of minimally invasive surgery such as "NOTES" (Natural Orifice Endoscopic Surgery), SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery) and SPA (Single Port Entry) have not really entered pediatric surgery. After the introduction of laparoscopy and thoracoscopy, however, increasing restrictions on surgical access, especially in childhood, have become increasingly important. Preliminary results show that the so-called single incision operation has advantages. In this case, laparoscopic surgery can only be performed through a small incision in the belly button. Benefits include reduced post-operative wound pain, faster recovery, and better cosmetic results. With the establishment of operations with only one trocar channel, also in childhood, the goal of a scar-free operation is getting closer.
