TaTME – Video presentation

TaTME is the latest approach to the treatment of rectal cancer. A huge number of papers have been published in the last few years, demonstrating its potential and raising expectations. While waiting for more robust evidence, it seems that histopathological and therefore oncological outcomes could be improved. Antonio M. Lacy explains the beginnings of TaTME as well as its main surgical steps. Everything started when the first TaTME in the world was performed in Barcelona in 2009 and the first TaTME by Cecil Approach (2 teams) was also first performed in the world in Barcelona in 2012.
