    Transperineal prostate biopsy after low anterior resection

    Related Topic
    I am about to undergo a transperineal MRI/ultrasound-fusion-guided prostate biopsy. Two years ago I was misdiagnosed with rectal cancer and had ultra-low anterior resection. Although the biopsy will not be transrectal, I am concerned about the possibility of suffering anastomotic leakage afterwards; what should be done to remove the possibility of its occurrence? With regards, Josip Zamboni
