What to expect during Laparoscopic Esophageal Hernia Repair
You will always need a camera, light cord, bovie, trocers, and insufflation tubing. The surgeon may use a Verres needle before they go in with their first trocar. It is very common for a Harmonic scalpel to be used, as well as an endostitch, and clip applier. A penrose drain should be made available.
The patient will be on the bed in lithotomy position with their legs in yellow fins. This is so the doctor can stand in between the patients legs at the foot of the bed. Their screen in usually right in front of them. Legging drapes and a laparotomy drape will be used.
During the case, anesthesia usually has an esophageal bougie that they insert so the surgeon can watch down below to see exactly where they can operate.
