OBJECTIVE: Evaluate gasless laparoscopic gynecologic surgery as an alternative to conventional technique with carbon dioxide insufflation. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study of 49 cases. RESULTS: Gasless laparoscopic gynecologic surgery was successful in 90% of cases. The gasless technique permits the surgical team to use the laparoscopic and vaginal approach simultaneously. CONCLUSIONS: Gasless laparoscopic gynecologic surgery seems to be a reliable alternative to conventional laparoscopy for selected indications.
