The objective of this film is to present the potential laparoscopic approaches for a voluminous right pararectal lipoma partially overlapping the pelvic floor. The advantage of this approach is the magnification of anatomical images which allows to better preserve the nervous plexus, and especially to limit the risk of bacterial contamination as in perineal and/or transrectal approaches. The pelvic floor will be reinforced at the end of the intervention by a semi-absorbable composite prosthesis.
