Abstract: In our own experience over the last 15 years, the primary transpelvic vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous (VRAM) flap is a reliable tool to prevent perineal wound complications after cylindrical excision in radical anorectal tumor surgery. To minimize the operative trauma in such patients, we performed a laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection combined with an open posterior cylindrical excision and a primary transpelvic vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous (VRAM) flap via a minimal supraumbilical incision, which is described here for the first time.
