Abstract

Rectal stricture is an occasional complication of abdominoperineal pull-through and low anterior resection of the rectum and irradiation injury. Although the causes and pathogenesis of this phenomenon are poorly understood, various techniques for stricture dilatation have been described. In this article, we present two cases of severe postoperative rectal stricture that were not amenable to conventional methods of dilation but were succesfully managed by transanal electroresection using endoscopic transurethral electroreectoscope.
