Don't be stumped by the stent ‐ TaTME in the resection of a stented rectal cancer – video vignette

Stephen Dalton, Edward Courtney, Andrea Saracino, John Bunni


We present the case of a 69 year old man who underwent transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME) after emergency treatment, in another institution, of an obstructing rectal cancer with a self‐expanding metal stent (SEMS). The aim of the video is to illustrate how the trans‐anal approach can be a useful technique for safely resecting a stented rectal cancer.
