Transvaginal specimen extraction after combined laparoscopic splenectomy and hysterectomy: Introduction to NOSE (Natural Orifice Specimen Extraction) in a community hospital.

Ramalingam M, King J, Jaacks L - Int J Surg Case Rep (2013)

Bottom Line: We wanted to illustrate the fact that transvaginal organ extraction may be performed safely in a community or district hospital with standard instruments without incurring additional cost, morbidity or increased operating time.Transvaginal specimen retrieval was technically easy to accomplish.When combined with a gynecological procedure that involves a colpotomy, this may present a unique opportunity to explore the utility of NOSE.
