A laparoscopic guide comprises a hollow body having a longitudinal mid-plane and a cross sectional area that tapers from a proximal end to a distal end thereof. The distal end has a distal end face being oriented substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal mid-plane. The distal end face is adapted for communication with an inlet of a trocar port. The proximal end is adapted for receiving a laparoscopic surgical instrument or the like therein prior to the laparoscopic surgical instrument passing through the trocar port. The proximal end comprises an open end face that is oriented obliquely relative to the distal end face.
