    Abstract

    The method involves inserting a bag (1) through a patient opening i.e. naked incision, in an abdominal wall. Tissue is delivered into a bag opening (2) of the bag. The bag opening is withdrawn back through the patient opening. The bag is sealed. The bag is inflated to create an artificial pneumoperitoneum that extends an abdomen and provides an additional working and viewing space. Laparoscopic procedure is carried out on the tissue located in the inflated bag by sealably inserting a morcellator into the bag. The tissue is retrieved by pulling the bag out through the patient opening.
