CASELLI M, GINO; OCARES U, MISAEL and CASELLI M, BRUNO. Transanal excision of a viUous adenoma using a SILS® port. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.4, pp. 391-394. ISSN 0718-4026. doi: 10.4067/S0718-40262012000400012.
Minimally invasive transanal microsurgery was described in 2009. It allows the excision polyps or small malignant lesions. We report a 73 years old female consulting for hematochezia. A sessile polyp located 9 cm above the anal margin was discovered during a colonoscopy that corresponded to a villous adenoma. The polyp was excised transanally, using a SILS* port for transanal endoscopic microsurgery.
