Laparoscopic resection of colorectal polyps is a safe and minimally invasive technique for the management of colorectal tumors. Thus, the laparoscopic approach to endoscopically not resectable polyps with suspicion of malignancy enriches the therapeutic spectrum. The purpose of the video is to show the right colectomy technique for a caecal polyp with a possible degenerative disease. An oncological resection is therefore offered. The positioning of the trocars is no different than usual.
