This video demonstrates the excision of a mesh of rectopexy during a robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery. This mesh has migrated through the anterior wall of the rectum. The first step of procedure shows dissection and mesh removal. The second step shows the suture of the anterior wall of the rectum. No stoma was required during the operation and afterwards. The objective of this video is to demonstrate the feasibility of a complex pelvic surgery using a robotic laparoscopic approach.
