Defecography is the standard diagnostic technique for the diagnosis of functional disorders of the posterior pelvic compartment. However it has some limits as radiation exposure, low-contrast resolution, some degrees of embarrassment and discomfort for the patients. Furthermore it often fails to directly visualize the changes that affect the pararectal space. Here we present a never described case of rectal perforation after defecography with barium impaction removed by TEM (Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery).

Abstract

Defecography is the standard diagnostic technique for the diagnosis of functional disorders of the posterior pelvic compartment. However it has some limits as radiation exposure, low-contrast resolution, some degrees of embarrassment and discomfort for the patients. Furthermore it often fails to directly visualize the changes that affect the pararectal space. Here we present a never described case of rectal perforation after defecography with barium impaction removed by TEM (Transanal Endoscopic Microsurgery).
