ABSTRACT
Endoscopy, which was introduced in the 20th century, changed the outcome of surgery by reducing the need for analgesia and shortening hospital stay. Any new surgical method should improve safety and outcome. At the beginning of the 21st century, the use of natural orifice surgery is a promising progress. The transgastric and transdouglas approaches are currently being investigated and evaluated. The transgastric approach still has a long way to go due to objective problems such as infections, stomach acidity, and the optimal way to ensure the safe closure of gastrotomy. The transdouglas approach, however, is already starting to establish itself and it seems that with the construction of designated instruments it will prevail in the 21st century.

    Background. We studied whether nitrous oxide (N2O) added to a fluid allows the infused volume to be quantified by measuring N2O in the expired air during normal breathing. If so, N2O might serve as a tracer of fluid absorption during endoscopic surgery.Methods. Twelve male volunteers received...
