In this video, we show the indications, technique and contraindications of direct port entry in laparoscopic surgery. Although this way of entry is not popular, recent data show that there are no differences in terms of safety for a way of entry (i.e., Veress needle, open laparoscopy, Hasson's technique, direct entry, etc.) when compared to another. We also discuss some hints and tips and tricks to use when performing this entry technique.
