INTRODUCTION It is often technically difficult to cut the lower rectum with an endoscopic linear stapler in single-incision laparoscopic colorectal resections (SILC) because some surgical devices are inserted through the same access platform. If the rectum is cut incorrectly, it may cause anastomotic leakage. We recently applied natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE) using the prolapsing technique to overcome this technical difficulty in SILC procedures in selected patients.
