Anastomotic strictures complicating colorectal anastomoses can be difficult to treat. This condition must not be considered as an uncommon complication. In 20% of patients it may be a serious state that may require a therapy. Two patients treated successfully without complication with the transanal use of an CEEA stapler are presented. The staple cutter is safe and easy to use, and except for a conventional anoscope, no special equipment, including fluoroscope, is needed. On the basis of the successful results obtained, the procedure using staple cutter is recommended for the treatment of anastomotic stricture of the rectum.
