Restoration of intestinal continuity at a second stage after emergency total proctocolectomy may be difficult or hazardous due to the pelvic cavity being closed off. We present a way of keeping the pelvic cavity open and accessible following total proctocolectomy by insertion of a breast implant that hinders fibrosis and prevents intestinal loops from occupying the space. A 275 ml silicone breast implant was placed in the pelvic cavity after total proctocolectomy and closure of the rectal stump. Three months after the initial surgery, the breast implant had kept the pelvic cavity open, facilitating identification of the rectal stump and creation of an ileoanal J-pouch at this second stage. The use of a breast implant to fill the pelvic cavity may facilitate restoration of intestinal continuity in second-stage surgery and thereby decrease the number of associated complications.
