What is Diagnostic Laparoscopy?
Diagnostic laparoscopy is a surgical procedure in which the patient’s abdomen and pelvis can be viewed and examined.

During a diagnostic laparoscopy, the cause of abdominal and pelvic pain is diagnosed. Medical ailments and conditions such as appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy, cholecystitis etc. are detected during a diagnostic laparoscopy. It is most often used in the examination of female reproductive organs.

Diagnostic laparoscopy is performed when diagnostic examinations using ultrasound or X-ray are unable to diagnose an ailment or medical condition.

How is Diagnostic Laparoscopy Performed?

  • A small incision is made in the patient’s abdomen below the navel.
  • A needle is inserted into the incision area and gas is passed into the abdominal cavity to create space in the abdomen for a better view and workspace for the surgeon.
  • Then a laparoscope, which is an endoscopic tube with a tiny camera attached to it, is inserted through the incision.
  • Using the laparoscope, the patient’s abdomen and pelvic regions can be viewed.
  • Additional incisions may also be made to insert surgical tools if required.
  • In a diagnostic laparoscopy in relation to gynecology, the surgeon may use some dye which is injected into the cervix that enables a better view of the fallopian tubes.
  • Once the diagnostic laparoscopy is completed, the laparoscope and other instruments are removed and the incisions are closed and covered with bandages.

How to Prepare for Diagnostic Laparoscopy?
  • The patient should abstain from smoking a few days before the surgery.
  • The patient should wear comfortable clothing and footwear on the day of the surgery to prevent a fall or injury due to drowsiness caused by anesthesia.
  • The patient’s clothing should be loose fitting as the patient is likely to experience abdominal cramping.
  • The patient should remove jewelry and other accessories before the surgery.
