The EAES Manual of Endoscopic Surgery provides surgeons and surgical residents with the best practical knowledge currently
available on commonly performed minimally invasive abdominal and thoracic procedures. Expert European surgeons share their
career-long experience by dissecting operative procedures step by step and highlighting potential technical and anatomical
hazards. Authors instruct the reader in a fashion similar to the conversations that take place between master surgeons and
their apprentices while scrubbing for surgery. Uniform full color illustrations complete the detailed descriptions of minimally
invasive surgeries. In addition to the operative instructions, a key component of the manual is the provision of information
on patient selection, choice of operative approach, special needs for minimally invasive procedures, and the early diagnosis
and treatment of complications after surgery.
