In this video, the author demonstrates the possibilities of an laparoscopic oncologic approach to perform a right colectomy in an obese patient. After a primary vascular approach, the colon is freed from its posterior and lateral attachments prior to being resected. The intracorporeal anastomosis is beautifully described and substantiated here. Finally, the author underlines the benefit of using dissection instruments recently developed by the medical device Industry (Sonicision™, V-Loc™, and Tri-Staple™ Technology by Covidien).
