Laparoscopic Repair Of Peptic Perforation


Laparoscopic Repair Of Peptic Perforation refers to laparoscopic omental patch repair to treat perforated peptic ulcers. Through small incisions, a Graham patch technique is used to close the perforations. The surgeon uses a piece of omentum to cover the perforations using laparoscopy. As compared to conventional open repair of peptic perforation, laparoscopic repair needs considerably less time to perform, involves less pain post-operation, lessened chest complications and earlier return to normal day-to-day activities.
