Complications and Management

Complications following abdomino-perineal resection have been reported as high as 61% (8).

Postoperative sexual dysfunction can occur in both men and women, including a significant percentage of men with impotence. These complications are more common with advancing age and are somewhat unavoidable. Management, when indicated, can consist of counseling, medication, and implantation of prosthetic devices, or reconstructive surgery.
