The laparoscopic approach for rectal tumors is a technically demanding procedure, but it is safe and it has the feature of an oncologic procedure. The objective of this video is to demonstrate a standardized technique for the treatment of cancers of the upper rectum in a female patient. The therapeutic strategy includes a partial rectal resection with total mesorectal excision followed by a colorectal anastomosis on the inferior third of the rectum.
