Abstract

The rapid improvement in these parameters may reflect both ascents in the learning curve and change in type of procedure. Adhesions, due to prior surgery or inflammation making dissection tedious, is the most important technical factor which effects operation time (p < 0.001). However, despite increased complexity, operating time decreased, reflecting improved skills. Thus, the experienced laparoscopic surgeon can increase the spectrum of applications with expectations of shorter operations and lower complication rates.
