[Working posture of laparoscopy-practicing surgeons: ideal and reality].
Zentralbl Chir. 2000; 125(8):698-701.ZC

Abstract

Since laparoscopic surgery has been established the advantages for the patients of minimal invasive surgery have been discussed extensively. But this method holds considerable disadvantages, due to the non-ergonomic surgeons working position. This is mainly caused by the false positioning of the monitor and operating table as well by the use of foot switches and differing instrument handles. The common working position of the laparoscopically working surgeon leads to serious risks for the patient. The industry and hospital administrations do not know anything about this and only few surgeons are aware of these dangers. The authors want to draw attention to the insufficiencies of the laparoscopic working place. Due to missing resources until now no general concept has been developed that meets current standards.
