Laparoscopic Multiple Peritoneal nodule Biopsy

blog

Laparoscopic Multiple Peritoneal Nodule Biopsy is a minimally invasive procedure in which small incisions are made in the abdomen and a laparoscope (a thin tube) with a camera and tools is inserted to diagnose peritoneal cancer. Under general anesthesia, biopsies (small pieces of tissue removed for inspection under the microscope) are collected from tumor nodules to diagnose and determine the extent of cancer in the peritoneum (a thin membrane covering the abdominal organs).
