This video shows a standard oncological laparoscopic approach for T3 cancer of the colorectal junction. In this case, the patient presents a big tumor with a clinical sub-occlusion. A low anterior resection is performed by a medial to lateral approach, with a primary inferior mesenteric artery control. Splenic flexure mobilization was not necessary in this case. An end-to-end colo-anal anastomosis ends the procedure.
