SILS +1 Low Anterior Resection Versus Straight SILS

  • Deobrah S. KellerEmail author


In our experience, a low anterior resection is the ideal procedure for a reduced port laparoscopic approach, where one additional 5 mm umbilical port is used in addition to the single incision port, to overcome technical and ergonomic challenges. Per surgeon preference, the single port can be used alone – at the umbilicus or the Pfannenstiel site – without the additional port, but we present the “SILS +1” approach for a low anterior resection.
