An anastomotic stricture is a common clinical finding. Its management can be difficult. Major corrective surgery is possible; however, it is technically challenging and not risk-free. The purpose of this video is to show the feasibility of a laparoscopic re-intervention on a stenosis following a colorectal anastomosis performed 2 years previously during the treatment of a PT3N0M0 mid-rectal cancer.
