Laparoscopic partial TME for sessile polyp with intraoperative endoscopic control
Total mesorectal excision (TME) was described 20 years ago and is now recognized as the therapeutic gold standard for middle and lower third rectal cancers.
This is the case of a 70-year-old man with a BMI of 24 presenting with multiple polyps of the sigmoid colon larger than 3cm at 10 to 30cm from the anal verge. He has no past surgical history and colonoscopy revealed 3 sessile polyps at 15, 20, and 30cm from the anal verge as well as a flat polyp at 10cm from the anal verge. The histological examination concluded in one adenomatous, one adenovillous with high-grade dysplasia and one hyperplastic lesion. A laparoscopic partial TME with intraoperative endoscopic control is performed.
