    Introduction: Single-port surgery (SPS) has been growing in acceptance as an alternative to traditional laparoscopic surgery. With SPS, there are technical skills required that are not routine to standard laparoscopy. We explored the feasibility of micro-laparoscopic colectomy (MLC) using 3 mm...

    Objectives. We report the single-incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) learning experience of 2 hepatobiliary surgeons and the factors that could influence the learning curve of SILC. Methods. Patients who underwent SILC by Surgeons A and B were studied retrospectively. Operating time,...

    Objective: Virtually any port system for single-port laparoscopic surgery is for single usage only. The aim of this study was to trial the novel and completely reusable port X-Cone in order to perform a cholecystectomy by one infraumbilical incision. Methods: Single access cholecystectomies were...
