[Retroperitoneal rectum perforation during barium enema].Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax. 1992 May 12; 81(20):664-6.SR
The examination of rectum and colon with barium sulfate is a method which is increasingly replaced by the endoscopy; therefore, the routine of doing this examination is increasingly vanishing. This means that the risk of this method increases. We report a case and discuss the symptomatology as well as the management of a perforation of the rectum during an examination with barium sulfate.
