Background: Natural orifice surgery represents a greatstep to the future. Difficulties arose on our current practice. Reviewing the literature does not solve all the debates. Report: The author suggests a simple algorithm for transanal natural orifice specimen extraction (NOSE). Conclusion: Transanal extraction of colectomy and/or proctectomy specimen is a readdily feasible technique.
