Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

To evaluate the advantages of 3D laparoscopy and compare its significance with conventional 2D laparoscopy during various operative procedures.

METHODS:

During present study, two groups were formed. Group A included patients who were operated using 3D laparoscopic imaging and Group B consisted of operated patients by 2D laparoscopy. Operative performance of both the groups was compared in terms of operative time and quality of imaging.

RESULTS:

Operative time interval for various procedures was significantly less in Group A as compared to Group B. Also, imaging quality was far superior with use of 3D imaging system especially in terms of depth perception.

CONCLUSION:

Advantages of 3D laparoscopy are well appreciated during operative procedures as previously documented by other studies in training models.
