Quantify the frequency and extent of trocar slippage during complex laparoscopic gynecologic surgeries [ Time Frame: After the trocars have been positioned into the subject's abdomen but before the procedure starts and between 30 and 45 minutes after the start of the case, baseline measurements of each trocar's insertion depth will be measured ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Same as current

Determine if there are trocar slippage differences between three commonly used types of trocars and to determine if a new device - LaproStop - can effectively eliminate trocar slippage. [ Time Frame: After the trocars have been positioned into the subject's abdomen but before the procedure starts and between 30 and 45 minutes after the start of the case, baseline measurements of each trocar's insertion depth will be measured ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Intraoperative Trocar Slippage Study
A Pilot Study to Determine the Extent of Intraoperative Laparoscopic Trocar Slippage.

The purpose of this study is to find out how much a trocar might slide during a typical laprascopic hysterectomy. We also want to find out if there is a difference between how much three commonly used trocars slide and if a device called LaproStop has an effect on the slippage.

Patients will be randomly assigned into the different trocar groups. After this assignment has been made, we will then assign the Laprostop to one of the two trocars by chance.
