The uterus continues to be a source of difficulty in mobilization of the rectum. These difficulties are compounded in laparoscopic operations, particularly anterior resection, proctectomy and vaginal sacrocolpopexy. Techniques to overcome this have in general proved unsatisfactory. We have adopted a technique of using an extended Vesellum forceps from gynaecological practice and recommend its use by all. The technique is described.
