This video demonstrates the laparoscopic management of a 30-year-old woman with a large, symptomatic rectovaginal endometriotic nodule, associated with right hypogastric nerve entrapment, extending up to the ipsilateral sciatic spine, as well as transmural vaginal and rectal invasion. In order to perform a complete nodule resection, the right hypogastric nerve was sacrificed, the vagina had to be opened, and an ultra-low rectum discoid resection using a hemorrhoidal stapler was performed.
