Title: Aetiology of tumour cell movement during laparoscopic surgery : patterns of movement and influencing factors / by Michael Lutz Texler
Author: Texler, Michael Lutz
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Surgery
Abstract: Explores the factors affecting the movement of tumour cells from a primary malignancy across the peritoneal cavity to the port-site following laparoscopic intervention. Filter methods and radio-labelled tumour cells provided the most useful way of following cell movement. Concludes spread of tumour cells to the port-site is more likely in the presence of disseminated disease, as well as with inappropriate surgical technique. Metastasis may be reduced by the use of intraperitoneal lavage and appropriate surgical technique.
