IntroductionTransanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) is a consolidated technique for the excision of rectal tumors. However, many aspects relating to its morbidity, risk of functional alterations, and therapeutic outcomes are still unclear. The aim of this study was to assess the rate of morbidity and fecal incontinence after TEM, and to identify associated risk factors.MethodsWe prospectively recorded the clinical data of 157 patients who underwent TEM from 1996 to 2013. Among these, 89… Expand
