J Laparoendosc Surg. 1992 Jun;2(3):191-4. doi: 10.1089/lps.1992.2.191.


The use of a doppler probe, specially designed for use in laparoscopic surgery is described. The doppler probe is easy to use and fits through a 5 mm laparoscopic port. It facilitates the identification of vascular structures and has been an aid in performing laparoscopic varicocele ligations, pelvic lymph node dissections, and cholecystectomies.
