Colo Anal Anastomosis with Rectal Stump Eversion

This technique was described by Hautefeuille et al. [17]. The rectal stump, once it has been sutured, is eversed through the anus and sectioned a few millimetres above the dentate line. The colic stump or the reservoir are then pulled down through the anus and the anastomosis is then sutured as before.

In order to allow the overturning of the rectal stump it is necessary to perform the rectum dissection, during abdominal time, as distal as possible. Bowel function is said to be good [18].
