In this key lecture, Professor Morales-Conde provided a brief historical coverage of colorectal surgery with different approaches and technologies. The main objective was to make the procedure minimally invasive, safer, and more reproducible. He demonstrated the basic principles and maneuvers of port placement, splenic flexure resection, total colectomy, and intracorporeal vs. extracorporeal anastomosis with different meta-analyses and videos. He highlighted the main aspects of splenic flexure mobilization and also described future approaches, innovation, and new trends in colorectal surgery with their clinical significance.
