Objective: A prospective non-randomized study to evaluate clinical value of peritoneum pelvic floor reconstruction in laparoscopic abdominal perineal resection.

Methods: From Sep.2009 through Dec.2011, selected from all 219 patients, 37 patients with low rectal cancer admitted were non-random divided into study group(n=18) and control group(19). Their clinical data and follow-up results were reviewed.

Result: No significant differences were observed in terms of extent of resection, the volume of intraoperative blood loss, and the time of post-operative recovery,post-operative complications, and duration of hospital stay between the two groups were similar. The median follow-up period was 14( 7~26) months. No significant differences were observed between two groups in postoperative complications and quality of life during the period follow-up.

Conclusion: Peritoneum pelvic floor reconstruction is not independent factors on the incidence of postoperative complications and quality of life for laparoscopic abdominal perineal resection (APR).
