This video demonstrates a number of different NOTES techniques for performing sigmoidectomy in a porcine model. The principal trans-gastric approach is combined with a trans-vaginal, trans-rectal and laparoscopic approach in 3 different animals. Different methods of vascular dissection and colonic division are discussed.
