Three trocar sigmoidectomy for diverticulitis with transanal extraction
The combination of laparoscopy and specimen extraction through a natural orifice has the potential to decrease wound complications and to improve postoperative recovery.
The objective of this film is to demonstrate the possibilities of specimen extraction of a sigmoid diverticulitis transanally with reduction of abdominal openings that may sometimes induce incisional hernias and postoperative pain.
In this case, a laparoscopic three-port technique is performed: one 12mm optical port situated in the umbilicus, and two right iliac fossa ports (one 5mm port placed in the right flank, and a 12mm port in the right iliac fossa for introduction of staplers).
