Step by step

Proximal colon preparation

Proximal colon

Evaluate the proximal colon to determine if it is sufficiently mobilized to reach the distal colon without tension.

Sufficient mobilization

If the proximal colon cannot reach the distal colon without tension, it is advised to further mobilize the proximal colon towards the left colic flexure prior to extracorporeal transection.
