Abstract

Background/Purpose. For laparoscopic surgery, the creation of pneumoperitoneum still remains a must. The insertion of a Veress needle or a trocar is never perfectly safe, and almost every kind of intraabdominal organ injury due to these insertions has been reported worldwide. Here, we describe a safe technique for creating pneumoperitoneum.
