Aims: The key to rapid and successful operation is to find as fast as possible a pathological focuses or lesions and theirs relationships with surrounding vessels and tissues. Intraoperative ultrasononavigation is a simple and best way to achieve these goals.

Methods: In past 5 years (2002–2006) we have 54 clinical experience in surgery of the parathyroid, adrenal, and endocrine pancreas with consecutive (step-by-step) ultrasononavigation during open and laparoscopic operations. B-K Medical machines: “Hawk 2102 EXL “ and “Viking 2400“ with specials probes for open and laparoscopic surgery were used.

Results: We were able to locate the lesion in 96,3%. The operation time was reduced by 25–30%.

Conclusions: Intraoperative ultrasound navigation is a simple, precise and economical technique that allows the surgeon to localize lesions step-by-step, especially during laparoscopic operations, facilitate and accelerate the operation.
