Abstract

In the XIX century, the surgeon faces surgical challenges due to the creation of new technologies. Accidental or compressed air-induced injury to the colon and rectum is rare. We present the case of a 45-year-old patient who consults the emergency department, then a high-pressure rectal pneumatic trauma, with clinical findings of peritonism, managed with a Hartmann-type colostomy. and anterior resection of the rectum using laparoscopy, with findings of rectosigmoid perforation. With this, it can be demonstrated that minimally invasive surgery is a feasible approach in hemodynamically unstable patients without contraindication for pneumoperitoneum.
