Gene context of Laparoscopes

  • Over a 40-month period, 136 catheters were placed with the peritoneoscope, 135 of which were double-cuffed, Swan neck curled catheters, with a uniform radiopaque stripe [17].
  • METHODS: A 3-mm transumbilical laparoscope with secondary midline port sites midway and suprapubically was used to perform a partial salpingectomy in 109 women desiring permanent sterilization [18].
  • Gynaecological units in Great Britain are using the laparoscope increasingly frequently to investigate the infertile woman; in this paper the need for this form of investigation is emphasized [19].
  • The optical angle (theta), defined as the angle formed by the line of action (determined by the working ports) and the line of vision (determined by the laparoscope), was varied by 30 degrees intervals from 0 degree to 180 degrees to the left and to the right [20].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Laparoscopes

  • In 150 women with tubal pregnancy consecutively treated over a two year period by laparoscopic techniques, 74 were treated conservatively by linear salpingotomy with carbon dioxide laser laparoscopy and 76 cases non-conservatively through the laparoscope by salpingectomy [21].
  • After trocar and laparoscope insertion, the ipsilateral ovary and mesovarium were identified, and the mesovarium, tubal membrane, and proper ligament were infiltrated with 2% mepivacaine [22].
  • METHODS: Mares with normal ovaries, as determined by palpation per rectum, were restrained in standing stocks and sedated with detomidine (0.01 to 0.02 mg/kg intravenously [i.v.]) and butorphanol (0.01 to 0.02 mg/kg i.v.). The laparoscope and instrument insertion sites were infiltrated with 2% lidocaine before incision [23].
