The Authors describe a new reconstructive model after total proctectomy: the S-E colo-anal anastomosis (S-E CAA). The technical requisites of this variant are discussed and compared with more traditional reconstruction models. At a first evaluation of the results, the S-E CAA seems to be able to sensibly ameliorate the course and the outcome of the anastomosis and to hasten the recovery of the normal sphincteric function.
