Title: Tumour metastasis and dissemination during laparoscopic surgery / by Susan J. Neuhaus.
Author: Neuhaus, Susan Josephine
Issue Date: 2000
School/Discipline: Dept. of Surgery
Abstract: Examines recent literature which describes cases of metastatic involvement of laparoscopic port sites, not only in patients with advanced tumors but in patients with early stage carcinoma, and even in patients following laparoscopic procedures during which tumors were not disturbed. This thesis utilises an established small animal model to investigate the aetiology of port site metasrases and the efficacy of preventative strategies in reducing tumor implantation following laparoscopy.
