As per available reports about 3 relevant journals, 13 Conferences, 1 workshop are presently dedicated exclusively to surgical endoscopy and about 6 articles are being published on surgical endoscopy.
Surgical Endoscopy means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside the body for medical reasons using an endoscope, an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Unlike most other medical imaging devices, endoscopes are inserted directly into the organ. Endoscope can also refer to using a borescope in technical situations where direct line of-sight observation is not feasible.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide. OMICS Group Journals encourages original and well researched articles for publication. With the help of a strong 50, 000 experts as editorial board members and reviewers, OMICS Group journals uphold the standard review process. All the articles submitted for publication are subjected to a blind peer review. Upon incorporating the changes the articles are published online. Once approved for publication, these articles remain archived permanently in their respective repositories. OMICS Group Journals follow online tracking system where the authors can submit their articles online and track its status from time to time.
Scope and Importance:
An endoscope can consist of
•A rigid or flexible tube.
•A light delivery system to illuminate the organ or object under inspection. The light source is normally outside the body and the light is typically directed via an optical fibre system.
•A lens system transmitting the image from the objective lens to the viewer, typically a relay lenses system in the case of rigid endoscopes or a bundle of fiberoptics in the case of a fiberscope.
•An eyepiece. Modern instruments may be video scopes, with no eyepiece, a camera transmits image to a screen for image capture.
•An additional channel to allow entry of medical instruments or manipulators.
A health care provider may use endoscopy for any of the following:
•Investigation of symptoms, such as symptoms in the digestive system including nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty swallowing and gastrointestinal bleeding.
•Confirmation of a diagnosis, most commonly by performing a biopsy to check for conditions such as anaemia, bleeding, inflammation, cancers of the digestive system.
•Giving treatment, such as cauterization of a bleeding vessel, widening a narrow oesophagus, clipping off a polyp or removing a foreign object.
Specialty professional organizations which specialize in digestive problems advise that many patients with Barrett's oesophagus are too frequently receiving endoscopies. Such societies recommend that patient with Barrett's oesophagus and no cancer symptoms after two biopsies receive biopsies as indicated and no more often than the recommended rate.
After the procedure the patient will be observed and monitored by a qualified individual in the endoscopy room or a recovery area until a significant portion of the medication has worn off. Occasionally the patient is left with a mild sore throat, which may respond to saline gargles, or chamomile tea. It may last for weeks or not happen at all. The patient may have a feeling of distention from the insufflate air that was used during the procedure. Both problems are mild and fleeting. When fully recovered, the patient will be instructed when to resume their usual diet (probably within a few hours) and will be allowed to be taken home. Because of the use of sedation, most facilities mandate that the patient be taken home by another person and that he or she not drive or handle machinery for the remainder of the day.
Infection and over-sedation.
The main risks are perforation, or a tear, of the stomach or oesophagus lining and bleeding. Although perforation generally requires surgery, certain cases may be treated with antibiotics and intravenous fluids. Bleeding may occur at the site of a biopsy or polyp removal. Such typically minor bleeding may simply stop on its own or be controlled by cauterisation. Seldom does surgery become necessary. Perforation and bleeding are rare during gastroscopy. Other minor risks include drug reactions and complications related to other diseases the patient may have. Consequently, patients should inform their doctor of all allergic tendencies and medical problems. Occasionally, the site of the sedative injection may become inflamed and tender for a short time. This is usually not serious and warm compresses for a few days are usually helpful. While any of these complications may possibly occur, it is good to remember that each of them occurs quite infrequently. A doctor can further discuss risks with the patient with regard to the particular need for gastroscopy. With the application of robotic systems, tele surgery was introduced as the surgeon could be at a site far removed from the patient. The first transatlantic surgery has been called the Lindbergh Operation. Wireless oesophageal ph. measuring devices can now be placed endoscopic ally, to record ph. trends in an area remotely.
Disposable endoscopy: Disposable endoscopy is an emerging category of endoscopic instruments. Recent development has allowed the manufacture of endoscopes inexpensive enough to be used on a single patient only. It is meeting a growing demand to lessen the risk of cross contamination and hospital acquired diseases. A European consortium of SME is working on the DUET project to build a disposable endoscope.
Capsule endoscopy: A new endoscopy technology uses a Magnetically Guided Capsule Endoscope (MGCE) for wireless control, monitor and imaging.
Augmented Reality: The endoscopic image can be combined with other image sources to provide the surgeon with additional information. For instance, the position of an anatomical structure or tumor might be shown in the endoscopic video.
Current research works on the endoscopic collection of dimensional 3D-data, such as using laser triangulation or the approach of structured light projection. Depending on the optics used, technical inner geometries can be measured with accuracies in the low µm-area.
Some reports show the global endoscopy equipment market over the forecast period of 2013 to 2018. The market is estimated at $28.2 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $37.9 billion by 2018, growing at a rate of 6.1% from 2013 to 2018.
