Epublication WebSurg.com, Apr 2019;19(04). URL:
This video of a live surgery performed by Professor Chen (Associate Professor, China Medical University Taichung, Taiwan) during an IRCAD Taiwan course very clearly demonstrates the stepwise execution of a laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) with all its tips and tricks. This is the case of a 65-year-old woman, with a low rectal tumor (4cm) is operated on after a short chemoradiation course (2 weeks before) for a stage IIA cancer (cT3N0M0). Professor Chen’s surgical skills and experience and the beauty of the procedure, associated with a dynamic Q&A and expert comments coming from the auditorium, make of this video a must see.
