Abstract

Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is the new therapeutic technique. This procedure stands on the cutting edge of minimal invasive surgery that accesses the abdominal cavity through a natural orifice under the endoscopic image. There have been many animal experiments, and clinical trials of NOTES. We performed a transgastric endoscopic cholecystectomy of a pig using conventional endoscopic instruments through a natural orifice and the assistance of a 5mm laparoscopic trocar.
