Perineal hernia after laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection (APR) for rectal cancer is more and more frequent. Its cure is challenging. In this recurring hernia, the authors propose a new approach using a silicone breast prosthesis inserted into the presacral space. In this film, the different steps are thoroughly described. Late follow-up will determine if it was a good choice to propose to the patient with such an invalidating pathology.
