Rectourethral fistula is an uncommon but debilitating condition. It is most often associated with iatrogenic injury following treatment of prostate cancer. The York-Mason procedure has proven to be a reliable, effective, and safe approach to the correction of a rectourethral fistula. The York-Mason procedure allows for direct visualization of the rectourethral fistula via a posterior transsphincteric incision. It has demonstrated a low recurrence rate with minimal increase in rates of fecal incontinence or anal stenosis. Herein, we present a guided video documenting our experience with the York-Mason procedure in the repair of an iatrogenic rectourethral fistula.
