ABSTRACT: Traumatic injuries of the rectum are unusual even though their treatment is challenging and often lead to high morbidity and mortality rate. This paper reports a rare case of complete rectal avulsion with multiple fracture and hemoperitoneum treated with a multistep approach in our department. The anorectal avulsion is a rare rectal trauma; only few reports are available. Treatment key points of rectal trauma are: direct repair, diverting stoma and sacral drainage. We reported a case of anorectal avulsion with complete detachment of external sphincter muscle. A multidisciplinary approach was mandatory in this kind of lesions.International journal of surgery case reports. 04/2012; 3(7):319-21.
Article: Removal of a foreign body from the distal colon using a combined laparoscopic and endoanal approach: report of a case.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We describe the case of a of 53-year-old homosexual male, from whom a cigar container (22 cm in length and 3.5 cm in diameter), which was introduced into the rectum and migrated upwards to the distal colon, was successfully extracted by combining laparoscopic and anal approaches. The foreign body was mobilized laparoscopically, pushed down the rectum, and then extracted transanally with the aid of a dilator anoscope. Combining the laparoscopic and anal approaches in selected cases of colorectal foreign bodies is useful.Diseases of the Colon & Rectum 12/2000; 43(11):1632-4. · 3.13 Impact Factor
