  Purpose

The is a pilot study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of hybrid transvaginal-transabdominal procedures. Diagnostic peritoneoscopy (visualizing the inside of the abdomen), appendectomy (removal of the appendix), and cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) will be performed through a vaginal incision with an additional small incision in the umbilicus.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Cholecystectomy
20 patients in this arm will undergo cholecystectomy, or removal of the gallbladder, through this experimental approach. This arm will compose of patients with symptomatic gallstones (cholelithiasis).
Procedure: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Surgery
An incision will be made in the vagina and a flexible surgical camera (endoscope) and instruments will be introduced. The surgical procedure for each given arm will be performed with the aid of an additional surgical instrument inserted through a small incision in the umbilicus.
Experimental: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Appendectomy
20 patients in this arm will undergo appendectomy, or removal of the appendix, through this experimental approach. This arm will be composed of patients with chronic appendicitis that has abated or early acute appendicitis.
Procedure: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Surgery
An incision will be made in the vagina and a flexible surgical camera (endoscope) and instruments will be introduced. The surgical procedure for each given arm will be performed with the aid of an additional surgical instrument inserted through a small incision in the umbilicus.
Experimental: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Peritoneoscopy
20 patients in this arm will undergo diagnostic peritoneoscopy with or without biopsy for any indication.
Procedure: Hybrid Transvaginal-Transabdominal Endoscopic Surgery
An incision will be made in the vagina and a flexible surgical camera (endoscope) and instruments will be introduced. The surgical procedure for each given arm will be performed with the aid of an additional surgical instrument inserted through a small incision in the umbilicus.
