Brief Answer: Need clarification... Detailed Answer: Hi, I am sorry, I don't think I understand your question clearly. Do you mean limb (upper arm) shortening? Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure / surgery done on the abdomen for abdominal pathologies. I don't think they have any relation with upper arm (limb), therefore please rephrase your question. It might be helpful if you can post a detailed account of your medical problem and treatment if any is planned. Looking forwards for a complete and clear query from you... Best Wishes!!
