Transanal resection of rectal tumors is an effective and safe approach for early stage rectal tumors as well as large polyps that are not amenable to endoscopic resection. For such resections, we use a multiport device that is a modified approach of the traditional Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery (TEM) and the single-site laparoscopy platforms that have been describe by some as the Transanal Minimally Invasive Surgery or TAMIS approach. Preliminary data of this procedure has shown good results. We want to show this technique for rectal tumor resections using uncomplicated set-up and standard laparoscopic methods.
