In this instructive HD 3D video we present our technique of transvaginal hybrid-NOTES anterior resection in diverticular disease. The film combines intra- and extracorporal pictures, simultaneous taken during the operation in HD 3D quality with computer animations of each operation step. In our experience on more than 200 patients the transvaginal hybrid-NOTES anterior resections is a safe and feasible evolution of the standard laparoscopic procedure. The 3 D depth perception improves the accuracy and precision of surgical tasks.
