Preclinical cadaveric study of transanal robotic proctectomy with total mesorectal excision combined with laparoscopic assistance.


BACKGROUND Anterior resection with total mesorectal excision (TME) is the standard method of rectal cancer resection. However, this procedure remains technically difficult. A robotic transanal approach could overcome some of these limitations. An initial laboratory experience with robotic transanal TME using a new designed port on human cadavers is reported… (More)
