We present video vignettes illustrating a stepwise approach to robotic left-sided colorectal resection with natural orifice intracorporeal anastomosis and extraction of specimen.
Following completion of 40 consecutive cases we demonstrate technical considerations and reproducible steps to accomplish this robotic approach which eliminates the necessity of an incision other than the port sites.
Presented at the SAGES 2017 Annual Meeting in Houston, TX.
