Laparoscopic sigmoidectomy for sigmoiditis with transanal specimen extraction

Epublication WebSurg.com, Nov 2013;13(11). URL:
The objective of this video is to demonstrate a sigmoid colectomy technique for a diverticular sigmoiditis with a transanal extraction of the resected colonic segment. The goal of this video is to demonstrate the feasibility of this technique by means of only 3 trocars to further reduce parietal damage. The author reveals his tips and tricks for a perfectly standardized minimally invasive operative technique. In addition to colonic extraction, the different stages of mechanical anastomosis are perfectly outlined. This team recommends that this type of intervention should be used for benign pathologies.
