PMTextbook Prevention and Management of Laparoendoscopic Surgical Complications, Third Edition (PM3) is a medical textbook that is unique today but will be easily recognizable years from now as medical publishing and learning catch up with the computer and internet age. It is free (Open-Access), easy to read, and easy to search from your computer, Smart Phone or PDA. PM3 is written by 130 authorities in their fields, is translated into 23 languages, and even contains embedded videos.

This book continues the groundbreaking tradition of SLS’ Prevention and Management series, the first of their kind. Covered here are all things Laparoscopy, Endoscopy, and Minimally Invasive Surgery including Robotics, Single Port, Natural Orifice Surgery and other advances that help patients recover quickly and safely.

The advancement of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) over the past two decades has been phenomenal. This Third Edition of the textbook has helped change not only learning in Minimally Invasive Surgery but has set a standard for a multi-specialty learning approach led by a number of surgical specialties who benefit greatly by understanding each others approach to MIS surgery.

PM3 represents another great leap forward in learning for MIS surgeons in all specialties. We commend those who have distinguished themselves by their contribution to this unique, phenomenal learning device. We hope you use the contributions of these forward thinking individuals to help further your practice and improve patient outcomes worldwide.
