Abstract

One of the major benefits of conventional laparoscopic surgery has been the reduction of surgical trauma. Compared with laparotomy, conventional laparoscopic surgery has reduced blood loss, post-operative pain, and recovery time (1). Therefore, conventional laparoscopic surgery is now considered the treatment of choice for many abdominal procedures.
