"Simplified Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass" is a great example of a paper on surgery and rehabilitation. The video entitled “ Simplified Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass” featured in WebSurg provides opportunities for health care practitioners, and those who are interested to know more about surgeries which could be viewed on the web, to be apprised of a particular procedure, known as the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in the noted management of morbid obesity (Ramos and Neto). The surgeon/s was explaining in detail the procedure according to the exact surgical phases and using technical terms in the process. Actually, for health care practitioners, viewing the video could be easy and part of the normal understanding that surgical procedures such as this could be viewed without much discomfort.
However, for some audiences who are not generally immersed and exposed to surgical and operative cases, viewing this presentation could be relatively uncomfortable due to the invasive extent of the graphic and visual representation that could be seen online. It is commendable that each video presentation has a brief abstract where general overviews of the contents are contained.
As such, from this presentation, the abstract revealed that “ learning to perform such a procedure is difficult as it is made up of very technical operative steps in complex cases of overweight patients with a great amount of adipose tissue” (Ramos and Neto: Abstract 1). Shown in about 23 minutes and 24 seconds, viewers are accorded with chances to learn more on what goes on with RYGB, which was considered a common surgical procedure that previously was privy to the surgeons; but now, could be shared to others who could view the procedure online, as they please.
