Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a relatively new procedure, which is gaining popularity for the treatment of morbid obesity. In this live video demonstration from the March 2009 NOTES Advanced Course at IRCAD in Strasbourg, Dr. Michel Vix performs a hybrid natural orifice transluminal endoscopic sleeve gastrectomy using the vagina as the natural orifice and only two operative 5mm ports. It is a very interesting video demonstration showing that sleeve gastrectomy for the treatment of morbid obesity is feasible and safe in selected patients using the hybrid transvaginal mini-laparoscopic-assisted natural orifice surgery.
