The value and efficacy of laparoscopic colorectal surgery has been validated by large multicenter, randomized, controlled trials. This video shows a laparoscopic sigmoidectomy in a 74-year-old woman who underwent an incomplete endoscopic resection of a T1 adenocarcinoma tumor. Four trocars are used: two of 10mm and two of 5mm.
