The video shows the case of a 60 years old female affected by two synchronous adenocarcinoma of the cecum and of the rectum. She is submitted to a laparoscopic right colectomy and low anterior resection in the same surgical procedure. Both resection and the anastomosis are intracorporeal; the first anastomosis is a side-to-side ileo-colic with linear stapler, while the second is a lateral-to-end colo-rectal with a 31 mm circular stapler, placing the anvil intrabdominally through one of the trocar incisions and introducing it in the descending colon through a colotomy.
