The objective of this film is to demonstrate a colectomy technique after laparoscopic rectal prolapse surgery that caused increased constipation in a female patient in her fifties. Indeed, a few months earlier, an indirect rectopexy had been performed with placement of subperitoneal strips; this was combined with a partial Douglasectomy. Following the study of transit times, a laparoscopic left colectomy was decided upon.
