Bottom Line: However, inconvenience remains for inexperienced surgeons during surgery when instruments conflict with each other, and a glove port is used hesitantly for such diagnosis related groups (DRG) because of its high cost.This glove port is ease to make besides being convenient to us, and inexpensive.This new glove port has the benefit of easy utilization and cost effectiveness for surgeons performing single-incision laparoscopic surgery.

ABSTRACT
Single-incision laparoscopic surgery has gained increasing attention due to its potential to improve the benefits of laparoscopic surgery. However, inconvenience remains for inexperienced surgeons during surgery when instruments conflict with each other, and a glove port is used hesitantly for such diagnosis related groups (DRG) because of its high cost. Authors made a new glove port by an odd surgical gloves and one wound protectors. This glove port is ease to make besides being convenient to us, and inexpensive. This new glove port has the benefit of easy utilization and cost effectiveness for surgeons performing single-incision laparoscopic surgery.

Mentions: The authors have created a new glove port superior in effectiveness and cost-effectiveness that overcomes the limitations of the previous single port and minimizes conflicts between instruments during surgery. This can be made and immediately used in the operating room, and in fact, can be made and used in any location as long as there are surgical gloves and wound protectors. Unlike the glove port extensively used prior to making the troca-combined glove port (Fig. 2) in use (used by cutting the fingertips and inserting one 10-mm and two 5-mm trocars), a trocar is not used but a hole is made directly on the glove fingertip. The hole is 2.5-3 mm in size. Because the diameter of all instruments used in cholecystectomy is 5 mm, the rubber becomes tightened as the instrument enters through this hole, thereby blocking any space through which air can leak. As a result, a trocar becomes unnecessary. When a 5-mm camera port is used, diameter of all instruments is unified to 5 mm, further making the situation highly favorable. Using this new glove port, cholecystectomy was performed (Fig. 3).
