In this article we introduce a novel technique of repeated single-port transgastric debritment of walledoff pancreatic necrosis using TriPort ™ Access System. The presented technique seems an appealing and innovative approach to the treatment of walled-off pancreatic necrosis in acute pancreatitis patients. Studies proving feasibility, safety and efficiency are necessary to elucidate real value of the technique
