Chronic constipation brings a great impact on quality of life. Colonic inertia is a rarely and extreme degree of constipation with difficult clinical treatment and often frustrating to the patient. Surgical treatment for colonic inertia is an interesting alternative and has a high success rate. We present the case of a patient with colonic inertia who underwent surgical treatment with total colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis by laparoscopy.
