Abstract

Over the last 5 years, laparoscopy has revolutionized the surgical management of many abdominal disorders. Some of the problems being so treated include biliary tract disease, achalasia, gastroesophageal reflux, peptic ulcers, colonic disorders, appendicitis, and inguinal hernias. Patient acceptance is excellent and hospitalization is reduced. Safety, long-term efficacy, and cost efficiency are finally in the process of being objectively evaluated.
