Conservative management of rectocutaneous fistula following radical perineal prostatectomy.

Inadvertent rectal injury during radical perineal prostatectomy may sometimes lead to the development of a rectocutaneous fistula. This has traditionally been managed with diverting colostomy until closure of the fistula is assured. We report 3 cases of rectocutaneous fistula following radical perineal prostatectomy, which were managed in a more conservative fashion. This included appropriate wound care, antibiotics, bowel rest, parenteral hyperalimentation, and, in the presence of a concomitant urine leak in 1 case, optimal urinary diversion and bed rest. All fistulas healed without incident.[1]
