This video shows a complete laparoscopic splenic flexure mobilization as the first step in anterior resection (medial to lateral approach). The advantage of routine specific flexure mobilization in an anterior resection is that sufficient length for a tension-free anastomosis is always assured and its completion early in the operation minimizes table adjustment and prevents its deliberation at the end of the procedure when the operator may be fatigued.
