Abdominal cavity approach
Introduce five trocars to gain access to the abdominal cavity (in da Vinci Si type; In Xi type the trocar placement may differ slightly). First the camera port is inserted just below the umbilicus. Trocar 1 and 3 are located just medial to the anterior superior iliac spine. Assistant and trocar 2 are placed between the camera and the other two ports.
