Minimally invasive surgical approaches to reduce approach-associated morbidity are an interdisciplinary goal in surgery. In principle, the endoscopic approach for the extraperitoneal repair of groin hernias is the minimally invasive variant of the modified Stoppa-approach, which is used for the treatment of pelvic ring injuries in traumatology.
Anatomical feasibility study regarding the plate osteosynthesis of the anterior pelvic ring via a minimally invasive variant of the modified Stoppa-approach.
We present the minimally invasive variant of the modified Stoppa-approach in a human cadaver step by step, both photographically and radiologically. Feasibility of the plate osteosynthesis of the symphysis is presented in a patient with open book injury via the minimally invasive approach using standard laparoscopic instruments.
The plate osteosynthesis of the anterior pelvic ring via the minimally invasive variant of the modified Stoppa-approach is feasible with existing standard laparoscopic instruments.
