Abstract

NOSES IV is mainly applied to patients with small tumor in the upper third of the rectum and distal sigmoid colon. The main operating procedures of NOSES IV include dissecting specimen in abdominal cavity, extracting specimen from the anus, and total laparoscopic anastomosis between the sigmoid colon and rectum. Compared with conventional laparoscopic surgery, NOSES IV can not only ensure proper oncologic resection but also minimize the trauma caused by abdominal incision.
