Stercoral perforation of the colon is a rare phenomenon and a potential life-threatening condition requiring acute intervention. A little more than 200 cases have been described to date. The mechanism is not completely understood. In this short communication, we present three patients with a colon perforation proximal to the anastomosis, similar to a stercoral perforation, following colorectal cancer resection with application of an intraluminal device, the C-seal.
