Case description

Anterior resection of rectum is performed if the anal sphincter and the colon continuity are possible to maintain. For this to be possible there must be ability to leave at least 1 cm of cancer free rectum, above rectal canal. There is no necessity of performing stoma during this procedure. Surgery is performed through the abdominal wall access and, after resecting part of rectum infiltrated by the tumor, junction between colon and remaining part of rectum is performed. The disadvantages of very low anterior resections are fecal incontinence, frequent defecation and inability to distinguish flatulence and the need of defecation
