Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Surgeon's Ability to Achieve a Staple Line at the Desired Level of the Rectum. The Reported Value Represents the Number of Participants in Whom the Criteria Was Met [ Time Frame: Operative ]
    The surgeon's ability to achieve a staple line at the desired level of the rectum.

  2. The Ability to Achieve Adequate Distal Margins (Defined as >2cm [or >1cm With Clear Histologic Evaluation]) in the Low Rectum. The Reported Value Represents the Number of Participants in Whom the Criteria Was Met [ Time Frame: Operative ]
    The ability to achieve adequate distal margins (defined as >2cm [or >1cm with clear histologic evaluation]) in the low rectum.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Access Measured by Surgeon Usability Questionnaire. The Reported Values Represent Percentage of Cases Surgeon Agree/Strongly Agree [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    1. Access measured by surgeon usability questionnaire.

  2. Visibility Measured by Surgeon Usability Questionnaire. The Reported Values Represent Percentage of Cases Surgeon Agree/Strongly Agree [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    2. Visibility measured by surgeon usability questionnaire

  3. Maneuverability Measured by Surgeon Usability Questionnaire. The Reported Values Represent Percentage of Cases Surgeon Agree/Strongly Agree [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    3. Maneuverability measured by surgeon usability questionnaire Question: Maneuverability of Radial reload during the procedure was adequate
