||An epidemiological survey was carried out to determine the type of musculoskeletal disorders affecting surgeons conducting laparoscopies, their intensity, location and frequency. It involved 52 surgeons aged between 30 and 65 years who answered a version of the Nordic questionnaire modified by the HSE. High levels of problems were observed for the neck (43%), shoulder (33%), lumbar region (35%), and hands and wrists (31%). A correlation between neck and wrist disorders, and hours of work was shown. Other findings are discussed.
