Editorial by the Editor-in-Chief
Today’s issue is special as it was prepared under the guidance of Professor Jadwiga Snarska, an outstanding coloproctology surgeon, the Head of Department of Surgery at the Collegium Medicum, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, and the Director of Science in the Hospital of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration in Olsztyn. Doctors from the Hospital of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration with Warmia and Mazury Oncology Centre and Provincial Specialist Children’s Hospital in Olsztyn are the authors of presented articles.
In this issue you will find a paper on surgical treatment of a rectovesical fistula formed as a result of iatrogenic injury after prostatectomy. Surgical access (transabdominal, transperineal, transrectal) and the choice of reconstructive technique are still a subject of discussion among surgeons. The authors describe their experiences in the treatment of 3 patients with rectovesical fistula. What is valuable is the fact that they also present their failures in treating these patients.
The authors concluded that novel techniques using a single port seem promising in the treatment of this severe complication, but, at the same time, they pointed out that observation in a larger group of patients is needed for a clear conclusion.
