Rectal Resection

Rectal resection results in loss of the rectal reservoir (the lower the level of resection, the greater the reservoir loss), one of the fundamental components to normal continence, and may be associated also with inadvertent (iatrogenic) sphincter damage [81]. As a result of the observed functional consequences of a low straight coloanal anastomosis, attempts have been made at restoring reservoir function by construction of a short colonic pouch [82], by coloplas-ty [83] or by end-to-side anastomosis [84]. Such reservoir construction improves (over the first 2 years) but does not abolish the functional consequences of the "conventional" technique, such as urgency, frequency and incontinence, the aetiology of which may also reside in changes in hindgut mo-tility [85, 86].
