The purpose of this video is to demonstrate the operative technique of a laparoscopic proctectomy using the trans-anal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) approach and to highlight key technical tips. The patient is a 66-year-old female patient with a T3N0M0 rectal cancer, status post neoadjuvant chemoradiation. The video shows a synchronous two team approach using high flow insufflation and 3D visualization to facilitate dissection as well as fluorescence imaging to assess colonic vascular supply.
