The two types of laparoscopes are telescopic rod lens systems and video lens systems. A rod lens laparoscope is usually rigid. Its metal exterior houses multiple sets of lenses within its cylindrical body. At the proximal end, a fiber optic light conducting cable carries light down the shaft and into the tip of the scope. The image is transuded through conducting wires connecting to an external monitor. Despite the availability of more technologically advanced alternatives, telescopic rod lens systems remain extremely prevalent in the market, a testimony to the superior refurbishing plans that back the sales of these products. Third-party companies have also started to play a large role in the refurbishing of rod lens laparoscopes as they often offer services that, while not as reliable as the original manufacturer's refurbishing services, often cost considerably less. Video laparoscopes are similar in appearance; however, they do not house mechanical lenses. They are equipped with a miniature camera at the scope's distal end that offers auto-focus capability, providing superior image quality. This "chip in tip" technology was pioneered by Olympus. Video laparoscopic technology is popular in the U.S., but many hospitals are skeptical that the increase in image quality from the older rod lens systems warrants the massive price premium. However, new scopes offering HD quality, and more recently 3D technology, will exceed surgeons' expectations with more realistic depth of field and superior image contrast. Abstract Laparoscopic surgery, which is also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), usually begins with the insertion of a laparoscope through a port of access, often at the site of the umbilicus or subxyphoid. Laparoscopes are essentially viewing tubes that are equipped with lights and small cameras. They transmit an image of the inside of the peritoneal cavity to allow surgeons to view and perform abdominal and pelvic surgery through single or multiple ports of access. They are commonly between 5 mm to 10 mm in diameter, and function as the surgeon's eyes, making them necessary for every laparoscopic procedure. Laparoscopes are fully reusable devices, but, due to the complexity of their design, often break down and must be serviced or replaced.
