Dr. Michael LI (Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Hong Kong) demonstrates his approach to laparoscopic sigmoidectomy in a case of sigmoid diverticulitis with an audience made up of renowned experts in colorectal surgery. Discussions around appropriate strategies for the management of non-oncologic disease between the operating surgeon and the experts are moderated by Professor Nicolas Demartines (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois, Lausanne, Switzerland). A brand-new dissecting instrument, the Sonicision™ cordless ultrasonic dissection device (Covidien, Valleylab) is also used during specific steps of the procedure.
