Transvaginal surgery is the most minimally invasive surgery for a gynecologic procedure. A 67-year-old woman who had four children with vaginal deliveries and one abortion, with no underlying disease and a body mass index of 22.4 kg/m2, came to the hospital due to menorrhagia. Her diagnosis was myoma uteri from an asymptomatic palpated mass at the lower abdomen. The ultrasonography showed a 9 cm × 5.9 cm myoma mass at the anterior wall of the uterus. After counseling, the transvaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) operation was conducted on May 2018. The process was a transvaginal NOTES hysterectomy following a transvaginal NOTES-assisted myomectomy. The uterine weight was 376 g. In this case, the surgeons could not enter into the pelvic cavity completely because the myoma mass was attached to the bladder which led to the surgeons safely performing the transvaginal NOTES myomectomy before the hysterectomy.
