Legend:

Bowel bags are transparent sterile plastic bags that had no practical application in gynecology. In this video we describe the bowel bag isolation technique used in cases of large pelvic masses, solid and cystic, that are felt to be at a low but real risk of malignancy. This technique protects the peritoneal cavity from contamination with malignant cells during morcellation or cyst rupturing.
