Laparoscopic Transvaginal Hybrid Cholecystectomy: a Prospective Data Collection.
Transvaginal hybrid procedures especially the transvaginal hybrid cholecystectomy are of interest as an available NOTES-Procedure for the clinical routine. Few authors have demonstrated the feasibility and safety in a selected patient collective. The aim of this prospective data collection is to evaluate the feasibility in the clinical routine in a non select patient collective.
Therefore all patients giving the informed consent to the transvaginal hybrid cholecystectomy will be included and assessed concerning feasibility to perform the transvaginal approach and complete the operation transvaginally.

Two-hybrid System Techniques
Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.
Presence or formation of GALLSTONES in the GALLBLADDER.
Surgical removal of the GALLBLADDER.
Presence or formation of GALLSTONES in the BILIARY TRACT, usually in the gallbladder (CHOLECYSTOLITHIASIS) or the common bile duct (CHOLEDOCHOLITHIASIS).
Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.

The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of cholecystectomy made by a transvaginal approach with a NOTES procedure (natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery).

The is a pilot study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hybrid transvaginal-transabdominal procedures. Diagnostic peritoneoscopy (visualizing the inside of the abdomen), appendectomy (...
To determine the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of a novel minimally invasive approach to cholecystectomy and to establish a description of this novel translumenal technique in humans a...
PURPOSE: In the recent past, access to the peritoneal cavity has involved primarily 'natural orifice transluminal' and 'single-port access' techniques, which are based on laparoscopy. The most frequen...
INTRODUCTION: A natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) approach offers the potential of reducing pain and convalescence after intra-abdominal operations. We present a single-instituti...
BACKGROUND: Natural orifice surgery (NOS) is gaining acceptance as an alternative to the traditional laparoscopic technique, especially for cholecystectomy through the transvaginal route. However, NOS...
Background/Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility and technical aspects of a new endoluminal surgical procedure: transvaginal laparoscopically assisted endoscopic cholecystectomy...
