The advent of laparoscopic techniques has heralded a new era in vaginal surgery, but it has not been without its problems and risks. The many advantages have meant that it is increasingly adopted in all situations, including those where the vaginal route would still be preferable for both patient and surgeon. Re-establishing a proper balance between the two methods, Vaginal and Laparoscopic Vaginal Surgery demonstrates when vaginal surgery is still the first choice and how it should be performed. The authors explain each procedure in full and detail the roles that each procedure should play in the repertoire of the gynecological surgeon. They cover the latest technologies, such as bipolar coagulation technology, and emphasize the role of laparoscopy in assisting vaginal surgery. The book delineates circumstances where a combined approach is more appropriate and situations where a purely laparoscopic vaginal approach is the approach of choice. After reading this text, surgeons will be able to perform the vaginal and laparoscopic vaginal operations it describes.
