AbstractLaparoscopic surgery has become increasingly popular in the management of pelvic masses. A major problem during laparoscopic surgery is removal of the specimen. The advantages of the bag retrieval technique using commercially available retrieval bag has been described. However, the size of the bags available is limited and they ate relatively expensive. We describe the use of a zipper storage bag for the removal of ovarian cysts in 11 patients undergoing operative laparoscopy without spillage of the cyst contents, the need for abdominal wound extension or to perform a culdotomy. The operating time is reduced, compared to 'purpose designed' bag retrieval systems. This technique is safe, easy to perform and cost-effective.
