Interview by Zoe Garoufalia. Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision (TaTME) is a relatively recent surgical procedure that was originally pioneered to overcome difficulties in addressing rectal cancer and especially low rectal cancer via a pure abdominal approach. It is quite a controversial technique, because despite initial data [1] showing non-inferiority to laparoscopic or open TME, a recent Norwegian report raised concern due to high rates of multifocal pelvic recurrences [2]. Nevertheless it is unclear whether these issues are related to the technique itself or to poor adherence to recommendations and insufficient training. Therefore, an international panel of expert surgeons supported by 14 international surgical societies was appointed to provide an up-to-date consensus on the safe implementation and application of TaTME.

In this interview, Gianluca Pellino, a colorectal surgeon from the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona (Spain) provides a brief summary of the efforts and findings on behalf of the CovidSurg collaborative. Gianluca is on the communications committee for the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) and is acting in a similar capacity on the CovidSurg collaborative.
