This recording of a masterclass in NOTES held at the IRCAD (2nd International NOTES hands-On Course, October 12-13, 2007) demonstrates the salient steps of several NOTES operations performed simultaneously and includes the comments of a live audience and input from expert observers. The 'PEG' method of obtaining access to the peritoneum via a gastrotomy is shown in a stepwise manner as well as more advanced transluminal procedures such as cholecystectomy, nephrectomy, distal pancreatectomy and sigmoidectomy. All operations are performed by pioneers in this specialist field from around the world and so this video record presents an exceptional opportunity to witness a state-of-the-art workshop.
