Abstract

Two or more procedures maybe combined into a single surgical event using an abdominal laparoscopic surgery technique. Synchronous operations can provide patients with the advantage of a single hospital stay, single anesthetic exposure and single recovery period. Cholecystectomy and totally extraperitoneal (TEP) herniorrhaphy should be performed in both extremities and in different spaces of the abdomen. As described in this report, laparoendoscopic single site surgery (LESS), synchronous cholecystectomy and TEP herniorrhaphy were successfully performed using an umbilical incision in a single surgical event.
