The article presents an analysis of the development and issues faced by the natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES). NOTES is a procedure that uses only natural orifices such as the stomach, anus and urethra. It compares the limitation and advantages of NOTES over laparoscopic surgery. It provides an overview of the risk assessment and technical issues faced by NOTES. It also presents experiments and human cases on transvaginal NOTES to demonstrate its developments.
