We report a case of a 52-year-old woman with hemorrhoids submitted to Procedure for Prolapse and Hemorrhoids (PPH), i.e. stapled hemorrhoidopexy, using a modified Longo's technique (double purse string) to treat an associated rectocele and rectal prolapse; the STARR technique (Stapled Trans Anal Rectal Resection) was not yet codified. The post-operative course was uneventful and the patient is discharged in II p.o. day. In fifth post-operative day the patient came back with an unusual rectal stenosis due to the superior purse string. The stricture was easily resolved by 'opening' the purse string with a transanal approach in outpatient setting
