The same layout has been adopted as in VoI. 1 of the series, with heavy em phasis on illustrative representation of the operative steps and techniques. In the diagrams on sites of trocar/cannulae, we have indicated not only the site and size but also the functional role of each port.The paramount problem of a deflectable probe (IV-E 1, Olympus Optical; Tokyo, Japan) is steam sterilization, because the technology employed is comparable to that of the flexible endoscope scanners (see Fig. 1.7b).
