In this video, we show the case of an 82-year-old man referred to our department with a T2N0M0 cancer of the right colon with four additional concomitant polyps, two pedunculated and two not pedunculated (between 1 and 2cm in size), localized to the left colon. The decision was made first to endoscopically remove the polyps. If the histology of the removed polyps confirmed the complete excision and the absence of invasive cancer, a laparoscopic right hemi-colectomy would be performed. The saline lift technique is demonstrated.
