BSAVA updates Endoscopy Manual with new video resources
The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Endoscopy and Endosurgery, Second Edition now contains 48 guidance videos for vets.

Eight new videos show rigid endoscopy and laser endosurgery procedures. 

The BSAVA has released several new guidance videos for its Endoscopy Manual, to be used by veterinary surgeons who wish to practice minimally invasive techniques.

The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Endoscopy and Endosurgery, Second Edition is edited by Philip Lhermette, David Sobel and Elise Robertson. It now contains 48 videos with practical advice for general practitioners.

Seven videos have been added to chapter 12, Rigid Endoscopy: Laparoscopy. This updated chapter now includes more detailed step-by-step guidance on laparoscopic spays. The new videos demonstrate a laparoscopic ovariectomy in a bitch and a cat, a liver and a pancreatic biopsy in a cat, as well as cholecystocentesis in a cat.

A new video has also been added to Chapter 16, An Introduction to Laser Endosurgery. This new video shows nasopharyngeal stenosis in a cat being treated with lateral laser resection and balloon dilation.

According to the BSAVA, the use of lasers improves the quality of surgical interventions and can be a helpful tool for veterinary practices that are already making use of endoscopy and endosurgery.

“As a minimally invasive technique, endoscopy is an important diagnostic and surgical tool for clinicians,” said Philip Lhermette. “Our new videos provide valuable visual guidance to support the manual, helping our members to develop and revise their skillset using the most current techniques.”

The videos can be viewed here on the BSAVA library.
