Low rectal dissection with nerve sparing-TME is a fully robotic procedure which provides for the complete excision of the rectum-mesorectum complex by blunt dissection of the Heald’s “holy plan”, providing conservation of the nervous structures responsible for urogenital function. In this respect, robotic surgery is greatly useful, because its three-dimensional view and the precision of its movements.
