This video shows a unique procedure during which a sigmoidectomy was performed with a single trocar and entirely through the umbilicus. The principles applied to benign colonic resections are respected. An original colo-colonic anastomosis is presented with the use of external magnets to aid in with the totally intracorporeal anastomosis. The postoperative cosmetic results are shown.
