This video demonstrates a robotic-assisted colostomy takedown in a 14-year old patient who had an end colostomy created following an iatrogenic rectal injury. The video highlights a partial sigmoidectomy with intracorporeal anastomosis and the utilization of fluorescent angiography to assess vascular supply. Preoperative and postoperative photographs emphasize the feasibility of minimally invasive surgery in the reoperative setting.
