PERSONAL COMMENTS:
This video shows one of the experiments that made part of a our recently manuscript, published in the Gastrointest Endosc. 2007 Jan;65(1):111-7.

ABSTRACT:
In this video, we show a representative example of NOTES cholecystectomy by transgastric and transvesical combined approach, in which feasibility was demonstrated in 7 female pigs. Thus, transgastric access was achieved after perforation and dilation of the gastric wall with a needle knife and with a balloon, respectively. Under cystoscopic control, an ureteral catheter, a guidewire, and a dilator of the ureteral sheath were used to place a transvesical 5-mm overtube into the peritoneal cavity. By using a gastroscope positioned transgastrically and a ureteroscope positioned transvesically, we carried out cholecystectomy in all animals. The transgastric and transvesical combined approach revealed feasible and particularly useful to perform cholecystectomy through exclusive natural orifices.
