Rectal post-operative anastomotic strictures are a difficult problem which may cause obstructive symptoms or prevent re-establishment of intestinal continuity. Current management includes endoscopic and surgical dilatations or laparotomy with revision of anastomosis. We present a novel technique of refashioning the anastomosis transanally with the use of a circular stapler.
