Groundbreaking minimally invasive surgical videojournal launched by Mary Ann Liebert Inc.

New Rochelle, NY, April 29, 2011Videoscopy, a groundbreaking new videojournal to complement the peer-reviewed monthly publication, Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques has been launched by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers ( Videoscopy ( publishes fully peer-reviewed surgical and microinvasive demonstrations of the latest techniques and technologies used to optimize surgical patient outcomes, including both adult and pediatric procedures. The videos can be easily searched and shared with colleagues to provide education and enable discussion.

Videoscopy (, Part B of the respected Flagship publication Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques (JLAST) (, is a bimonthly journal available free online through June 1, 2011 to encourage worldwide usage and participation.

With the launch of this dynamic new resource, videos of important surgical procedures will now be highly organized and easily searchable by medical condition, anatomy, surgical procedure, surgical device, author, most cited, and most recommended, with citation linking to related content. The videos can be viewed online and downloaded in Flash, QuickTime format, or as MP4s for access on the iPhone and iPad.

Videoscopy is under the editorial leadership of JLAST's Editor-in-Chief C. Daniel Smith, MD (Chair, Surgery Department, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL) and Associate Editor David McClusky, MD (Department of General Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA), Pediatric Editor Daniel J. Ostlie, MD (Department of Surgery, Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City, MO), and Video Editors David McClusky, MD and Mark Wulkan, MD (Pediatric Surgery, Emory University School of Medicine).

Listen ( to a podcast in which Video Editors McClusky and Wulkan explain what led to the launch of Videoscopy, and how this groundbreaking new resource will enhance surgical education and improve patient outcomes.

The premier issue highlights eight videos, including a laparoscopic nephrectomy, with video of the back-table dissection, and the first video of a single-incision low anterior resection on cadavers. Pediatric surgical videos show a video-assisted thoracoscopic esophagectomy and laparoscopic gastric transposition, and a therapeutic laparoscopy for high-grade intestinal obstruction. Videoscopy is a constantly evolving forum for the exchange of new ideas and techniques, especially for early adopters of technology.

"Videoscopy will have a tremendous impact," says Dr. Smith. "Surgeons will have ready access to their colleagues' videos detailing the tips, tricks, and finer techniques of an operation. They will see exactly how to execute the most important parts of procedures, both common and exotic procedures, whenever they want by accessing a video at home or in the office, before scrubbing for surgery, or even in the operating room. Such a resource has never before been so widely available through a peer-review process."

"Videoscopy offers seamless submission and peer review on Manuscript Centralthe same way you submit full manuscripts to JLAST," adds Dr. McClusky. "The submission process is straightforward and user friendly, with publisher support as needed."
