In this educational video, Dr. Armando Melani briefly demonstrates the main principles of laparoscopic sigmoidectomy for cancer in a 67-year-old female patient in a live interactive surgery. He highlights the technical aspects, anatomical landmarks, and key steps of lesser sac opening, vascular identification and division, splenic flexure mobilization, lateral mobilization, mesorectal transection, suprapubic incision for specimen removal, and end-to-end anastomosis (EEA).
