Manual of canine and feline endoscopy and endosurgery

Minimally invasive techniques, or ‘keyhole surgery’ as they are commonly known, have become the standard in human healthcare over recent years. Veterinary surgeons have been slow to exploit fully these new techniques, partly due to the high cost of instrumentation in the early days, and partly through natural conservatism. With the availability of equipment at a reasonable cost, these techniques have become cost-effective in general practice and provide several advantages over conventional surgery.

This Manual has been written as a hands-on guide for general practitioners interested in pursuing this fascinating branch of veterinary surgery. It is intended as a guide for those starting out in this interesting field – and subjects covered range from the purchase of equipment to basic techniques, with a few references to more the advanced techniques to whet the appetite of more ambitious surgeons.

We have tried to make the Manual as practical as possible, drawing from our own experience, to give hints and tips that we find useful both in surgical technique and on purchase of instrumentation without breaking the bank – and without compromising quality – in order to maintain high surgical standards. It is not meant as a substitute for qualified practical tuition, and we would urge the reader to take practical ‘wet lab’ courses with qualified instructors before embarking on these techniques for the first time.

Endoscopy is a very practical skill and requires adequate training both in the use of the instrumentation and in working within a two-dimensional video environment. Having said that, most of what is contained in the Manual is relevant to general practice and any competent surgeon with good hand-eye coordination can, with practice, carry out most of these procedures.

In a world where minimally invasive techniques have become commonplace in human surgery, people expect to have keyhole surgery themselves and are coming to expect the same level of treatment for their pets. The advantages are the same in animals as they are in humans.

Recovery is much shorter, allowing day surgery where previously recovery would take days or weeks. Reduction in perioperative pain is a major benefit for all patients. at a time when the profession is becoming more and more aware of the need for postoperative pain relief, should we not give some thought to causing less pain and trauma in the first place? In the words of Hippocrates ‘first do no harm.’
