This video demonstrates the laparoscopic single port restoration of bowel continuity after Hartmann’s procedure. The key steps of the operation —namely stoma removal, preparation of the descending colon, dissection and recut of the rectal stump, and trans-sutural colorectal anastomosis— are demonstrated and described in the video. The original aspect of this technique is that the authors carry out the reversal Hartmann procedure using a single port introduced into the stoma site.
