Abstract

Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) is an evolving experimental field exploring the technical feasibility and outcome of therapeutic interventions performed through the natural orifices of the body. The knowledge accumulating in NOTES is the result of animal experimentation and ongoing early clinical experience in humans. In this report we describe a patient treated with transanal endoscopic drainage of postoperative abdominopelvic sepsis.
