Hand Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery: An Updated Descriptive Overview

Introduction: Hand assisted laparoscopic surgery is an updated highly advanced version of laparoscopic technique. Such technique bridges the gap between traditional surgery and total laparoscopic surgery. Introduction of the hand intracorporeally enhanced the degree of freedom, hence, a remarkable degree of precision and safety in task performance. Clinical and...
