There is only one straight access from the utility port to the target structure, and this straight access should be reserved for operator’s right hand, to ensure the maximum degree of freedom and safety. For experienced single port surgeon, the best instrument setting will be Harmonic HD1000i in operator’s right hand for sharp dissection, and long curved sucker in operator’s left hand for suction/traction/blunt dissection.
