Abstract

Introduction

Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) has become an advancement in minimal acess surgery because it offers benefits like less postoperative pain, less invasive and has best cosmetic results. Even though the amount of time taken for SILS surgery is more, this can be brought down by experience and more advances on the type of instruments used. We are going to review different types of SILS ports available in the world today.

Material and methods

Articles of relevant studies are searched from the internet using Google, PubMed, Yahoo, HighWire press, SpringerLink, etc. available at world laparoscopic hospital.

Aims

The main aim of this review is to evaluate different types of SILS ports and their effectiveness in safe laparoscopic surgeries. To know if they offer any less postoperative pain and best cosmetic results than the multiple trocar surgeries, and to know the best SILS port.

Conclusion

Whatever might be the choice of single incision laparoscopic surgery or procedure, the best choice of port depends on many factors like choice of the surgeon, skill of the surgeon, availability of ports, operative time of the procedure and cost effectiveness. To know this, we need more controlled randomized studies on different types of SILS ports in single procedure. We cannot pinpoint which might be the best port for SILS at this point of time.
