Authors analyse 106 patients that were operated in their department by Dixon’s method, in retrospective study. They analyse indications for operations, lesions distance in rectum, endosonographic and CT findings. Basic principles of the operation technique are adequate blood flow, sufficient colon mobilization and tightness of the anastomosis being supplemented with transanal pertubation. Out of early complications anastomosis dehiscence appeared in 6 patients (e.g. 5.6%) out of which 4 were treated conservatively and 2 were being reoperated on (by axial ileostomia and drainage). In discussion different opinions on preoperative preparation, neoadjuvant therapy, presacral drainage, transanal pertubation and other decompressive techniques are anticipated.
