This video demonstrates a hybrid laparoscopic transanal abdominal transanal (TATA) low anterior resection with an end-to-end coloanal anastomosis. The procedure is performed in a young patient with low rectal cancer who underwent a neoadjuvant radio-chemotherapy. The procedure is initiated with the transanal approach, achieving the preparation of the low rectum in the intersphincteric plane. The second step consists in a medial-to-lateral laparoscopic left hemicolectomy. The operation is then completed with a transanal specimen extraction and a hand-sewn coloanal anastomosis.
