Trans Anal Total Mesorectal Excision (Alex Leo, Janindra Warusavitarne)

Alex Leo, St Mark's Hospital

This video reports the novel approach of combining single incision surgery and transanal rectal excision for restorative proctocolectomy and formation of iloanal pouch. The technique has the ability to minimise the surgical trauma and allow safe distal rectal dissection especially in males with a narrow pelvis.

The video has been submitted and accepted with the related paper by Colorectal Disease Journal in April 2016.
