Colorectal Dis 2017 Dec 4. Epub 2017 Dec 4.

Department of Surgery, Khoo Teck Puat University Hospital, Singapore.

Rectal preservation is gaining popularity in the surgical treatment of degenerated rectal polyps or early rectal cancer (1,2). Tis/T1 rectal lesions can be safely treated without chemoradiation (3). Treatment by transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) offers more advantages than endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) (4). The authors report a 60 year-old woman who underwent TAMIS for a large polyp located anteriorly in the middle 1/3 of the rectum, 7 cm from the dentate line and staged preoperatively as uTisN0M0.
