Attention to nerve identification in rectal cancer surgery began in Japan in the 1970s, but it was an American surgeon [1, 2] between the 1970s and 1980s who proposed a combination of the nerve-sparing principle with the TME technique. The result was the preservation of urogenital function in 90% of the patients treated, without affecting the oncological outcome. Subsequently, the effectiveness, implementation and safety of the technique were confirmed by Moriya’s group [3], and the long-term functional results were documented by the famous Dutch TME trial.

Abstract

Attention to nerve identification in rectal cancer surgery began in Japan in the 1970s, but it was an American surgeon [1, 2] between the 1970s and 1980s who proposed a combination of the nerve-sparing principle with the TME technique. The result was the preservation of urogenital function in 90% of the patients treated, without affecting the oncological outcome. Subsequently, the effectiveness, implementation and safety of the technique were confirmed by Moriya’s group [3], and the long-term functional results were documented by the famous Dutch TME trial.
