Laparoscopic surgery

Laparoscopic surgery is also known as key-hole surgery. It is a type of surgery using video cameras which enables doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to carry out the surgery without making a big incision (cut) in your body. This means that you will have less pain, less scarring and a faster recovery than the more traditional types of surgery.

Generalised lymphatic anomaly (GLA)

Generalised lymphatic anomaly (GLA) – previously known as lymphangiomatosis – is the name given to a rare, congenital (present at birth), and progressive disorder of lymphatic channels which can affect different organs including the bones and the intestines. It can cause problems if the abnormal lymphatic tissue develops within important tissues and structures. This information sheet from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the causes, symptoms and treatment of generalised lymphatic anomalies (GLA) and where to get help.
