Abstract: Surgery underwent a tremendous revolution in the past two centuries. From what was a barbaric death sentence in the 19th century, through the invention of anesthesia, antisepsis and improved surgical technique, it is now a profession that offers the hope of cure to many patients. Today the focus of progress within this field is lead by offering a faster less painful recovery whilst making interventions safer and preferably scarless. These aims are being reached by developments in endoscopic technology and it is within this historic background that the concept of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has developed.
