Abstract: Background. Rectum resection with total mesorectal excision (TME) and neorectal anastomosis often compromises anorectal function. Insight into the underlying mechanisms is lacking. Therefore, a prospective study was designed to investigate the relationship between clinical and functional outcomes preoperatively and postoperatively.
