The purpose of this video is to demonstrate a technique for the identification of intracolonic polyps during laparoscopy. Numerous techniques have been described, in particular ultrasonic-assisted identification for lesions of the distal colon and upper rectum. We use this identification technique in a patient with a polyp situated 40cm from the anal margin.
