This video demonstrates a rare case of single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a patient with situs inversus totalis using the E.K. glove port as the access port. There are only four reported cases in the literature of single port laparoscopic cholecystectomy in situs inversus totalis. The procedure was uneventful, demonstrating that this approach may also be an option for this kind of rare surgery. Reference: E Khiangte, I Newme, P Phukan, S Medhi.
