Abstract

In 1991, because of the international emphasis on laparoscopic surgery, a large contingency of surgeons took on the task of introducing laparoscopy to the People's Republic of China. This trip was a technological feat, since all of the equipment and instrumentation had to be carried into the country. This necessitated a major coordinated effort among professional teaching staff and industry representatives with their transported equipment. This unique educational opportunity is detailed in this article, which highlights, in particular, the contrast between the new “high-tech” surgery and the reality of a developing country.
