Özet

Rectourethral fistula (RUF) formation is a rare complication of prostatic surgery and other pelvic surgical procedures. The results of operations to correct RUF are not always satisfying, with a particular risk of recurrent breakdown or stricture formation at the site of the urethral closure. We present a case of a small RUF treated videoendoscopically with fibrin-glue application combined with endoscopic clipping.
