In 2007, Whiteford et al. described the first transanal NOTES radical sigmoidectomy in human cadavers. Currently, the transition on human application is increasingly observed. Although instrument and platform limitations are still a barrier to pure applications of transanal NOTES resection, ongoing work has resulted in worldwide human clinical case reports. In this video, Dr. Patricia Sylla presents a clinical case of a pilot study of laparoscopic-assisted transanal endoscopic rectal cancer resection.
