Optical trocars have been introduced as an alternative technique for obtaining access to the peritoneal cavity. The advantage is that each layer of the abdominal wall can be identified avoiding inadvertent injuries due to a lack of vision. From March 2010 to March 2011, 138 women underwent laparoscopy for benign diseases. They were submitted to gynecological laparoscopy for direct optical access. There was no evidence of vascular injuries. This study confirms that the optical trocar is a safe, rapid, and effective method, that offers a real perception of the safety of the entrance into the abdomen.
