Abstract After completing operative laparoscopy, it is often necessary to enlarge a 5-mm port to 10 or 12 mm for tissue removal. This may increase the risk of vessel injury and herniation, and has obvious cosmetic drawbacks. A simple, cost-effective technique for tissue removal does not require enlarging the 5-mm port. A long, firm thread is sutured to a sterile plastic bag. When tissue removal is required, the optic telescope is removed and the bag is blindly introduced through the available optical 11- or 12-mm cannula. The telescope is reintroduced, keeping the end of the thread outside the cannula sleeve. The specimen is placed in the bag and the bag is removed by pulling the suture through the optical cannula after removing the telescope. This technique was performed successfully in over 300 patients, with no difficulty or complication either during or after surgery. The device is inexpensive and takes 2 minutes to assemble.
