The objective of this film is to demonstrate the possibility of performing a purely transanal sigmoidectomy without laparoscopic assistance. The authors show that this approach, which has already been described for transanal rectal resection using the Perirectal Oncologic Gateway to Retroperitoneal Endoscopic Single-Site Surgery (PROGRESS) technique, is feasible and safe. Details as well as tips and tricks of this technique are clearly illustrated in a stepwise manner.
