For avoiding minilaparotomy in laparoscopic colon resection
Laparoscopic techniques in colorectal resection have become increasingly established in recent years as a standard procedure in colorectal surgery1,2 although a minilaparotomy is still necessary to recover the specimen. The SAAD retrieval tube – which can be introduced both transanally and transvaginally – was designed to avoid minilaparotomy and thus significantly reduce the morbidity of the abdominal wall in the form of wound infections, postoperative pain and the formation of abdominal hernias3.
