Laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery has developed rapidly, since the publication of the first edition Notes on Laparoscopic Gastrointestinal Surgery being, our technique of laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery has updated, especially in the improvement of skills, the recognition of surgical spaces, the concept of lymphadenectomy, the breakthroughs of digestive reconstruction and the modification of the reconstruction equipment. With the trend of medicine progressing, surgeons should keep on learning and improving the technique and skills. We also have an obligation to share the updates to younger ones.

After the first successful attempt of the first edition of the Notes on Laparoscopic Gastrointestinal Surgery, we are confident in the second edition with support of our colleagues and their passion as well as significant contribution. We adopted most manuscripts with surgical techniques and ideas updated, while adhering to the originality, popularity, practicality, intuitiveness and most important speciality.
