High-resolution imaging (>2K) has propelled comprehension of the anatomic structures in laparo-endoscopic surgery, and surgeons can even recognize the structure that has not been described in the textbook of surgical anatomy. This is particularly invaluable in cancer surgery and laparoscopic surgery has reportedly been better in the long-term results (survival). Although scientific investigation is lacking, the 3-D laparoscope system is also available for improvement of anatomical comprehension. The 8K video-system is expected to further extend the advantage of the high resolution imaging system, including endoscopic microsurgery. We had a chance to use 8K laparoscope in a clinical setting. Two cases of laparoscopic cholecystectomy were performed using this system. Although the system weighted 2.2kg, the image displayed on the 85 inch LCD was amazing. Two different membranous layers around the gallbladder were clearly identified. The 8K video-system needs to be further refined, it must stimulate development in instrumentation and surgical technique. Laparoscopic microsurgery could be clinically performed. It also seems possible to observe the whole abdominal cavity with a camera fixed to the umbilicus. Also by utilizing the wide size of CMOS,a combination of normal and specialized light property (e.g. infrared) can also be simultaneously displayed on the monitor.
