The objective of this film is to demonstrate a wedge resection of the right anterior colonic wall carried out to manage a flat polyp. A Surgiquest™ Airseal™ 12mm trocar is used for that purpose, along with two other trocars: a suprapubic trocar and an epigastric trocar. Two 12mm trocars are used: one of them is placed at the level of the umbilicus, and the other one is positioned in the epigastric region. The third trocar is a 5mm one. It will be placed in a suprapubic position.
