Rectal perforation may be caused by foreign bodies, trauma, or diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that typically require surgical intervention.[1,2,3,4] Treatment options include diverting colostomy, damage repair and drainage of presacral area for severe cases, and primary surgical repair for less severe cases under general or local anesthesia.[1,3,4] Here we report the simple, endoscopic clip-assisted primary closure of a deeply penetrating wound without anesthesia.
