Cleveland Clinic First To Perform Nephrectomy Completely Transvaginally

Once the vaginal port was in place, the abdominal port was removed. The kidney surgery took four hours following the insertion of the vaginal port, and the patient was discharged less than 24 hours after the procedure.

"This is a significant clinical step toward natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES), which has been confined to the lab for more than six years," said Dr. Kaouk. "This new approach makes minimally invasive surgery even less invasive and is an important step forward toward scar-less procedures."

Previously reported cases of transvaginal nephrectomy involved performing all aspects of the surgery through a multi-channel port in the belly button using the standard laparoscopic approach. In these cases, the vagina mostly acted as the extraction point for the diseased organ. In the method developed by Dr. Kaouk and his team, the entire surgery is perfo
