BLANCO DIEZ, A. et al. Yatrogenic prostatorectal fistula. Use of gracilis muscle pedicled flap for its reparation: Presentation of two cases. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.6, pp.466-471. ISSN 0210-4806.

We present two cases in which during retropubic prostatectomy for benign prostatic disease a prostatorectal fistula ocurred. We describe its reparation using a pedicled flap of gracilis muscle. We also present cistografic and opaque enema images wich shows the before and after of this surgery. Patients had good outcome without incontinence nor problems related to muscle desinsertion surgery.

Keywords : Prostatorectal fistula; Gracilis muscle; Fistulorraphy; Complications post retropubic adenomectomy.
