Advances In Equine Laparoscopy

New edition of the only detailed reference devoted to equine laparoscopy, now with new procedures and video clips

The newly revised and updated Second Edition of Advances in Equine Laparoscopy is a state-of-the-art reference to all aspects of laparoscopy in equine patients. The book covers skills and instrumentation, standing surgeries, and recumbent surgeries, with new sections describing evaluation of the small intestine, closure of the epiploic foramen, thoracoscopic repair of diaphragmatic hernia, uterine tear repair, ovariohysterectomy, and large granulosa cell tumors. A new companion website features video clips demonstrating the procedures discussed.

Each chapter in the new edition has been updated with relevant references produced during the intervening decade. The Second Edition adds 10 new chapters covering techniques and applications developed in the last decade, along with the addition of a section on two-stage procedures.

With chapters written by leading experts, Advances in Equine Laparoscopy discusses:

  • The foundations of laparoscopy, fundamental laparoscopic skills, suturing and knot-tying techniques, fundamentals of energy sources, and reusable and disposable equipment
  • Sedation and analgesia in the standing horse, diagnostic techniques, and evaluation of horses with signs of acute and chronic abdominal pain
  • Evaluation of the small intestine, closure of the nephrosplenic space, adhesiolysis, and mesenteric rent repair
  • Peritoneal flap hernioplasty technique for preventing the recurrence of acquired strangulating inguinal herniation in the stallion and inguinal hernioplasty using cyanoacrylate

Advances in Equine Laparoscopy is an essential resource for equine surgeons, surgery residents, and interns, especially those interested in minimally invasive surgery and those who are studying for board certification in surgery.
