    The new surgical concept of „natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery“ (NOTES) breaks with the old dogma that gastrointestinal flexible endoscopy should be performed exclusively within the gastrointestinal lumen. It guides flexible endoscopy into the peritoneal cavity and to...

    Background: STAT, or the self-approximating transluminal access technique, has been previously described and involves the dissection of a submucosal tunnel for peritoneal or mediastinal access from the esophagus and stomach. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and reliability of...

    Background: Most natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) procedures to date rely on the hybrid technique with simultaneous laparoscopic access to protect against access-related complications and to achieve adequate triangulation for dissection. This is done at the cost of the...

    Background: The transrectal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) approach is a potentially promising alternative to transgastric or transvaginal approaches for intraperitoneal procedures. However, whether the optimal transrectal approach for intraperitoneal surgery is anterior...

    Background: In natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES), procedures are performed with an endoscope passed through a natural orifice. One of the most important factors that will determine the future of transgastric NOTES is obtaining a reliable closure of the access site. The aim...

    Background: Most patients with malignant biliary obstruction are diagnosed at an advanced stage. eUS-guided biliary drainage (eBD) may be an alternative to percutaneous transhepatic or surgical drainage for failed access by endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (eRcp). Objectives: To...

    Background: As the field of natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) expands, new access sites are being investigated. One access site to the peritoneal cavity, which has not been the subject of much investigation, is transrectal access. The aim of this article is to describe a...
