LOPEZ K, FRANCISCO et al. Excision of a rectal villous adenoma using a transanal single port trocar. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.4, pp.387-390. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262012000400011.
Single port access for minimally invasive surgery is feasible nowadays. We report a 55 years old female presenting with hematochezia. During a colonoscopy, a villous adenoma of 2 cm in diameter located 5 cm above the anal margin, was found. This lesion was excised through the anus, using a single port trocar. The procedure lasted 45 minutes, the postoperative evolution was uneventful and the patient was discharged 24 hours after the procedure.
