This video abstract demonstrates the combination of old and new techniques for colorectal surgery. We present the case of a 42 year old female with a low-lying rectal cancer treated with laparoscopic low anterior resection + transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME). In order to achieve a tension free anastomosis, we created a retroileal colorectal anastomosis, as described by Andre Toupet in 1961.
