In this comprehensive lecture, Dr. Adriana Liceaga outlines all operative steps to perform a laparoscopic sigmoidectomy, ranging from patient, surgical team, and trocars positioning up to the surgical technique (division of the mesentery, bowel division, specimen extraction, and mechanical anastomosis). Natural Orifice Specimen Extraction (NOSE) techniques, such as the transrectal and transvaginal routes, are also discussed.
