This is the case of a 48-year-old man who presented with rectal bleeding. A cT3N1 adenocarcinoma was diagnosed in the middle/high rectum. This video demonstrated the intraoperative use of a 3D model. Preoperatively, a 3D model was extracted from medical imaging (CT-scan) by experts in medical image analysis. The technique of laparoscopic robot-assisted low anterior resection is described in a stepwise manner.
