In 1984, the Transanal Transabdominal Transanal (TATA) surgical procedure has been described by Dr. Gerald J. Marks. It was initially developed in cadavers. This surgery is applied in humans to avoid a colostomy. John Marks, Dr. Marks’s son, has achieved abdominal timing using a laparoscopic approach. The laparoscopic time of the procedure is facilitated when surgery is initiated through the perineal region.
