IntroductionSurgery of the gallbladder has evolved tremendously over the last century. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the gold standard for gallbladder removal and the most common laparoscopic procedure worldwide. In recent times, innovative techniques of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) and single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) have been applied in gallbladder removal as a step towards even more less-invasive procedures.DiscussionWhile NOTES and SILS represent the… Expand
Single-Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) in Biliary and Pancreatic Diseases
TLDR
A review of the potential benefits, limitations, and risks of SILS in biliary and pancreatic diseases and its feasibility in procedures such as cystogastrostomy and limited pancreatic resection is presented. Expand
Single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC): a refined technique.
TLDR
SILC or BIAS is effective for gallbladder removal, with comparable lengths of stay, operative times, and safety as the traditional method, with better cosmetic results. Expand
Are natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and single-incision surgery viable techniques for cholecystectomy?
TLDR
Comparing the available results by using natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and single-incision surgery techniques in a standard laparoscopic operation (cholecystectomy) found no difference in the incidence of complications was observed with the newer techniques, and adequately powered randomized control trials are needed to clarify whether SIS/NOTES cholecyStectomy has a similar length of hospital stay. Expand
Single-incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) in General Surgery: A Review of Current Practice
TLDR
Although SILS provides excellent cosmetic results and morbidity seems similar to conventional laparoscopy, larger randomized controlled trials are needed to assess the safety and efficacy of this novel technique. Expand
Single Port Laparoscopic Surgery: Concept and Controversies of New Technique
TLDR
Current evidence suggests that this technique can safely be mastered in the hands of experienced laparoscopic surgeons and, to date, level I and II clinical data on the benefits of SILS are lacking. Expand
Chapter General Introduction and Outline of This Thesis Introduction of Notes and Single-port Surgery Current Challenges
1 bACkGROUND The introduction of laparoscopic techniques in the early 1990s revolutionized the field of surgery. Many traditionally open procedures were replaced by minimally invasive techniques.Expand
Surgical Association ingle-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy ( SILC ) : a efined technique
BACKGROUND: Reports of decreasing the number of incisions in laparoscopic procedures began appearing in the 1990s. A recent spark in pursuing such an approach has been accelerated by natural-orificeExpand
SILS and NOTES cholecystectomy: a tailored approach.
TLDR
NotES and SILS are promising techniques that need new, dedicated instrumentations to reduce technical limitations, but randomized studies comparing SILS/NOTES and traditional laparoscopy are necessary to evaluate safety, efficacy, and potential benefits. Expand
Single-incision laparoscopic surgery and the necessity for prospective evidence.
TLDR
The history of laparoscopic surgery is reviewed, lessons learned to the evolution of single-incision laparoscopy are applied, and a statement urging for sound prospective evaluation is made. Expand
Single Incision Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Using a “Two-Port” Technique Is Safe and Feasible: Experience in 101 Consecutive Patients
TLDR
Although the aggregate number is not enough to accurately assess the rate or safety of bile duct injuries, SILC seems to be safe and feasible when evaluating other metrics and does not seem to interfere with operative efficiency compared with SLC. Expand

Of the 12 patients who underwent SILS cholecystectomy without major complications, 8 had previously undergone other laparoscopic surgeries and the body mass index (BMI) exceeded 35 in three cases. Expand
Patient perception of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery as a technique for cholecystectomy.
TLDR
Patients preferred NOTES to laparoscopy as the technique for cholecystectomy as long as the complication rates were comparable with current standards of LC and the oral orifice appeared to be the preferred approach for most patients. Expand
