Abstract

Self-expandable metallic stent placement is a well-established treatment for malignant colonic obstruction. However, colonic stent placement for tumors close to the anal verge is challenging because of the likelihood of severe pain resulting from the close proximity to the dentate line. Precise deployment of a stent for tumors close to the anal verge is technically difficult.
Herein, we describe the use of the newly developed proximal release–type colonic stent for malignant lower rectal obstruction close to the anal verge.
