Résumé : Colorectal cancer is frequent and diagnosed earlier thanks to the screening and to the progresses in the preoperative assessment. The precocity of the surgical resection takes advantage from the complete resection of vascular and nodes involvement. The rectal localisation of the cancer requires to take the reconstruction into account. If preoperative radiotherapy is helpful in T4 and T3 N2 and locally advanced tumour, the surgeon should consider the four approaches of rectal cancer: the anterior resection (Dixon-Wangensteen) (DW) with total mesorectal excision (TME), the colo-anal anastomosis with a J pouch, the abdomino-perineal approach (Miles procedure) requiring a definitive left colostomy, and in some rare cases the transanal local resection.
