The evolution of visceral surgery is characterized by defining with ever increasing precision the real role of new techniques. Hernia repair, abdominal compartment syndrome, pancreatic and colorectal cancers, as well as haemorrhoids, confirm this reality. Although laparoscopy has clear indications in hernia repairs, many still prefer open approach. The abdominal compartment syndrome, now better understood thanks to laparoscopy, is increasingly important in intensive care. The role of laparoscopy for pancreatic and colorectal cancers is still limited. The development of minimally invasive techniques has led to a reduced morbidity of surgery for haemorrhoids and better results. The economic impact of new technologies must remain a primary concern.
