The BSAVA has added eight new videos to its popular Endoscopy Manual, featuring rigid endoscopy and laser endosurgery procedures.
Edited by Philip Lhermette, David Sobel and Elise Robertson, the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Endoscopy and Endosurgery, Second Edition provides a comprehensive and practical guide, including 48 videos, for vets who wish to practice minimally invasive techniques.
Seven videos have been added to Chapter 12, Rigid Endoscopy: Laparoscopy, which has been significantly expanded to include more detailed step-by-step guidance on laparoscopic spays. The new videos show a laparoscopic ovariectomy in a bitch and a cat, a liver and a pancreatic biopsy in a cat, and cholecystocentesis in a cat.
Chapter 16, An Introduction to Laser Endosurgery also has a new video showing nasopharyngeal stenosis in a cat being treated with lateral laser resection and balloon dilation. The use of lasers improves the quality of surgical interventions and provides a valuable component for veterinary practices that are already making use of endoscopy and endosurgery.
“As a minimally invasive technique, endoscopy is an important diagnostic and surgical tool for clinicians,” said Philip Lhermette. “Our new videos provide valuable visual guidance to support the manual, helping our members to develop and revise their skillset using the most current techniques.”
You can view the videos on the BSAVA library.
