Abstract

The use of minimally invasive surgery for abdominal pathology, including malignancy, has increased significantly within the past decade. Despite the advances in radiographic imaging, the use of laparoscopy for diagnosing and staging abdominal malignancy has become an important tool in the overall care of these patients. A review of published series for a variety of abdominal malignancies is presented. With the growing experience in this technique, some preliminary conclusions and ongoing issues are discussed.
