This live surgical video demonstrates laparoscopic TME for a rectal cancer, at 8-10 cm from the anal verge, after neo-adjuvant chemoradiation. Dr. Michael Li performs the procedure with an active first assistant, providing a very similar operative technique to the open approach. This procedure is recommended to digestive surgeons with an interest in colorectal surgery.
