Abstract

Laparoscopic surgery is increasingly popular as a less invasive alternative to conventional open surgery. There are, however, drawbacks to the laparoscopic approach such as the lack of tactile feedback through long instruments and the two-dimensional display of the operative field. This means that laparoscopic surgery is technically more demanding than open surgery.
