We describe the use of the Endo Retract II © to perform the separation of the small bowel loops in laparoscopic colonic surgery. The idea is to introduce an open compress into the area occupied by the small intestine in such a way that, resting the separator upon it, we can manoeuvre as if it were a hand, thus allowing us to separate the intestinal package and freeing the area of the mesocolon for intervention.
