Abstract

Purpose: Prostato-perineal fistula is a rare abnormality. We present a simple endoscopic technique to manage this complicated problem. Materials and Methods: We report on a 34-year-old man with a prostato-perineal fistula after multiple surgeries for imperforate anus. The patient underwent an endoscopic injection of polytetrafluoroethylene and autologous fat in the fistulous tract. Results: Two endoscopic procedures with the injection of polytetrafluoroethylene and autologous fatty tissue around the prostatic urethral orifice were necessary to occlude the fistula. Conclusions: The endoscopic injection of polytetrafluoroethylene and autologous fat was an easy, well tolerated and long lasting solution in this patient.
