We describe our initial experience with embryonic-natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (E-NOTES) nephrectomy in a nonfunctioning kidney. E-NOTES was performed with modified single port access by using a surgical glove and wound retractor. We used several laparoscopic instruments, such as articulating laparoscopic instruments, clips, conventional laparoscopic graspers, and dissectors. The operative time was 80 minutes. There were no intraoperative complications.
