Multicenter Phase II Study of Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME) with Laparoscopic Assistance for Rectal Cancer

Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (taTME) is a novel minimally invasive surgical approach for the treatment of rectal cancer. With the taTME approach, much of the rectal dissection is completed transanally through specialized endoscopic platforms, which overcomes many of the challenges related to deep pelvic dissection.

Since the first taTME clinical report in 2009, the approach has been increasingly adopted worldwide. While preliminary outcomes of taTME are encouraging, they are limited to case series and one international registry.
