Method: 20 patients under laparoscopy surgery for benign gynecological pathology. Media age 54 years oíd, BMI 32. Five patients had previous surgery. The trocar utilized was Xcel, with endoscopio camera. The planes of the abdominal wall during the entrance were identified. The access was stopped when identifying vessels or organs adhered to the abdominal wall with perforation possibility. An alternative entrance was used. Once finished the surgery the trocar was retired without suturing the muscular fascia, only the skin. Results: Only in one case (1 of 20, 5%) it was necessary to stop the trocar insertion, when was identified adhesión of the intestine to the abdominal wall.
