Rectosigmoid cancers and those in the upper third of the rectum are removed by ‘high anterior resection’, in which the rectum and mesorectum are taken to a margin of at least 3 cm distal to the tumour, and a colorectal anastomosis is performed. For tumours in the middle and lower thirds of the rectum, complete removal of the rectum and mesorectum is required, i.e. total mesorectal excision (TME).
