First Abdominal Access in Gynecological Laparoscopy: Comparison of Techniques

  • Antonio Malvasi
  • Andrea Tinelli


The choice of a technique to enter the peritoneal cavity during a laparoscopy depends on diverse variables that do not foster any standardized method. It appears impossible to accurately define which is the best method for the first abdominal access in gynecological laparoscopy.
