The objective of this video is to demonstrate the laparoscopic sigmoidectomy using three ports with the transanal extraction of the sigmoid colon for the treatment of a diverticular sigmoiditis. The interest of this technique is the ability to limit the number of ports used; as a result, parietal trauma and morbidity may be reduced. In this case, two 12mm ports and one 5mm port are used.
