Transvaginal hybrid procedures are of interest as an available NOTES procedure for the clinical routine. The gynaecologists` experiences and the available studies report on low morbidity related to the transvaginal access. However, little is known about the vaginal and intraabdominal microbial contamination due to the transvaginal approach.
The aim of this cohort study is to evaluate the microbial colonisation and contamination in patients with transvaginal hybrid and conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
Therefore, pre- and intraoperative microbiological evaluations will be performed in patients with transvaginal hybrid cholecystectomy and laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
A form of LEPROSY classified by the World Health Organization for the purpose of treatment, based on clinical manifestations and skin smear results. Patients with paucibacillary leprosy have fewer than six skin lesions with no causative agent MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE on any slit-skin smear testing. Paucibacillary leprosy encompasses indeterminate, borderline tuberculoid, and tuberculoid leprosy.
