The Physiologic Effects of Laparoscopy: Applications in Oncology
The use of laparoscopic approaches to surgical disease continues to advance quickly. Laparoscopy applied to oncologic surgery continues to be debated. We review the experience of laparoscopy as it relates to surgery for tumors. Specifically, we discuss the physiologic changes and tumor response to laparoscopy, as well as the current concepts explaining port site recurrence.
