Abstract  

In these reports the authors describe one simple option to build a uterine manipulator with disposable materials used commonly in medical practice: a foley cateter, a 60 cc syringe, and a hysterometer. They believe this manipulator safely fulfills the role of uterine exposure in laparoscopic surgery with low cost.

Key words:  Laparoscopy      Hysterectomy      Uterine manipulator
