14 November 2019Anastomotic Techniques for TaTME
The evolution of rectal cancer treatment led to the development of different techniques and technologies to perform the colorrectal anastomosis. The mechanical staplers constituted, some decades ago, a breakpoint in rectal treatment; however, the introduction of transanal-transabdominal TME has led us to modify some of the conventional steps and instruments used previously to adapt to the new technique. In this next video, we will show different types of mechanical and hand sewn anastomosis which it would be useful to know how to perform in the different situations during the TaTME procedure.
