Abstract
Laparoscopic hysterectomy is currently considered the standard procedure in many patients who need hysterectomy. To reduce incisional morbidity and improve cosmetic outcomes we performed transumbilical single-port total laparoscopic hysterectomy using a special "single three-channel port" and standard laparoscopic tools with virtually no scar. We used an Alexis wound retractor (Applied Medical, CA, USA) and a surgical glove as the "single three-channel port". In this paper, we report four cases of total laparoscopic hysterectomy performed exclusively through an umbilical incision using a single three-channel port.
Key Words: Single port, Hysterectomy, Laparoscopy
