Abstract

Postoperative fistulas are among the most difficult and distressing of surgical problems. We describe a case of a discharging fistula that developed after low anterior resection and was successfully treated with a new biologic adhesive agent, gelatin-resorcin-formal glue. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a postoperative fistula after colorectal surgery successfully treated with gelatin-resorcin-formal glue. In conclusion, gelatin-resorcin-formal glue is useful for uncontrollable postoperative fistula.
