The article discusses the development of the abdominoperineal excision of the rectum in Great Britain. The author stated that Jacques Lisfranc has been the first to amputate the rectum without the use of an anesthesia. Meanwhile, the perineal excision of the rectum has been developed by IP Lockhart-Mummery. On the other hand, William Ernest Miles has stated that the penalty of the perineal approach is the permanent colostomy.
