A new anal retractor connected to an Octopus retractor holder and automatic suture clamp were used for local excision of rectal tumors to obtain easy access to proximal tumors with an adequate surgical field and to avoid complications. Shortening techniques and invagination techniques were adopted to pull down proximal tumors. This surgical procedure resulted in shorter operating time, less bleeding, earlier oral intake, shorter hospital stay, and fewer complications.
