The reduction of the number of trocars is one of the ways to minimize the invasiveness of the surgical intervention. This video shows a cholecystectomy with a single site access, using a Gelport. This device was designed for hand-assisted surgery. Standard laparoscopic trocars are inserted through the gel. Articulated instruments are used to recreate the triangulation of a standard laparoscopy. The intervention itself is performed in a standard way.
