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 (removal of the appendix), and cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) will be performed through a vaginal incision with an additional small incision in the umbilicus.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become the "gold standard" for the treatment of symptomatic gallstones. However, this surgical technique increases the risk of bile duct injury and lost gallstone...
Approximately 0.6% to 4% of cholecystectomies are performed because of gallbladder polyps. The decision to perform cholecystectomy is based on presence of gallbladder polyp(s) on transabdominal ultras...
A specialized form of transanal endoscopic surgery for microscopically controlled operations in the RECTUM.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.
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.
Endoscopic examination, therapy and surgery of the joint.
