 Single-incision laparoscopic surgery is rapidly spreading, while at the same time reduced-port surgery has become a focus of attention, aiming for less-invasive surgical procedures in cholecystectomy and surgery for gastrointestinal diseases. This has led to renewed interest in small-diameter forceps smaller than 3 mm in diameter that have not been used frequently. The small-diameter instruments such as Mini Loop Retractor (Covidien Japan), MiniLap (Stryker), or B-J Needle (Niti-On) are used as aids in single-incision procedures when a pure single incision procedure is difficult. Here we report a newly developed small-diameter forceps, Endo Relief, that have both good handling and cosmetic outcome.
