Abstract

Access to the sigmoid colon tumour by the conventional transanal technique has been hard to achieve. A transanal local excision procedure with an E type anal retractor and a stapler (minimally invasive transanal surgery, MITAS), combined with an invagination technique, was performed in a patient with a sigmoid colon tumour.
