Epublication WebSurg.com, Apr 2013;13(04). URL: http://websurg.com/doi/vd01en3949
The objective of this video is to demonstrate the laparoscopic management of complicated sigmoiditis. A persisting chronic abscess between the sigmoid loop and the bladder does not represent a contraindication to this minimally invasive approach. The authors outline the different technical points that will allow to resect the rectosigmoid and control the abscessed area as well as the bladder wall.
