Abstract

Various transanal and perineal surgical techniques have been described for the treatment of rectourethral fistula (RUF). However, these techniques are poorly suited for complicated fistulas. Here, we present a novel minimally invasive procedure: robotic-assisted laparoscopic segmental resection with rectoanal anastomosis for the management of difficult RUFs. This novel technique may be valuable in the treatment of recurrent or complex RUFs.
