Hand-assisted laparoscopic abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

Hand-assisted laparoscopic abdominal aortic aneurysm repair

Seminars in Laparoscopic Surgery 8(2): 168-177

Hand-assisted laparoscopic aneurysm resection enables the surgeon to use his tactile senses while performing a laparoscopic aneurysm repair. Even more complex procedures that involve suprarenal clamping of the aorta can be performed by using this laparoscopically assisted approach. Twenty-nine laparoscopic patients were compared with a control group of 19 patients who were operated on conventionally. Transperitoneal hand-assisted laparoscopic aneurysm resection with a tube graft or a bifurcated graft was performed. The anastomosis was sutured with conventional instruments using the mini-incision as an access. The time for laparoscopy did not exceed 40 minutes. The incidence of complications did not vary between groups. The mean operating time was 135 minutes in the conventional group versus 180 minutes in the minimal invasive group. Intensive care stay and postoperative hospital stay were significantly shorter after the laparoscopic procedure. An oral diet was resumed significantly earlier, and the time until complete recovery was shortened in the miniaccess group. Hand-assisted laparoscopic aneurysm resection can be performed safely with operating times almost as expeditiously as in open surgery. Because it can be offered to the majority of patients with aortic disease, the technique described has distinct advantages over a total laparoscopic approach and a less steep learning curve.
