This detailed video demonstrates Dr. Joel Leroy performing a high anterior resection for a T2 rectal cancer. The surgery commences in the usual fashion with a high ligation of the inferior mesenteric artery, followed by excision of the rectum including the total mesorectal package. All the steps are presented clearly, including the vascular dissection, lateral colonic mobilisation and the laparoscopic approach for total mesorectal excision (TME).
