Vaginal NOTES approach for risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy in BRCA mutation carriers: A video demonstration

Abstract : Risk-reducing bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) is an important option to prevent the development of ovarian and fallopian tube cancers in women with a BRCA1/2 mutation. Conventional laparoscopy is the current preferred technique since it is associated with less morbidity compared to laparotomy. Transvaginal Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (vNOTES) is a new minimally invasive technique that allows access to the peritoneal cavity through the vagina without skin incisions. The vNOTES technique for risk-reducing BSO is presented herein. This article includes a narrated, step-by-step video demonstration of the entire procedure. Risk-reducing BSO using the vNOTES approach is a feasible technique that appears to be simple, safe, and reproducible. This technique has the potential to improve patients’ surgical experience and provide good long-term functional and cosmetics outcomes. This technique needs to be further evaluated and compared to the conventional laparoscopic approach.
