In patients with colonic polyps not amenable to endoscopic removal, single incision laparoscopic resection of a polyp-bearing segment of colon offers an alternative treatment option. The Glove port offers an ergonomically and economically favourable option for this approach. Early mobilisation and division of the inferior mesenteric vein facilitates full mobilisation of the splenic flexure by freeing the distal transverse and descending colon from its retroperitoneal attachments, thereafter allowing extracorporeal anastomosis via a small transumbilical incision.
