Obstructive defecation syndrome (ODS) is a common disorder with a considerable impact on the quality of life of affected patients. Surgery for ODS remains a challenging topic. There exists a great variety of operative techniques to treat patients with ODS. According to the surgeon's preference the approach can be transanal, transvaginal, transperineal or transabdominal. All techniques have its advantages and disadvantages. Notably, high evidence based studies are significantly lacking in literature, thus making accurate assessments difficult. Careful patient's selection is crucial to achieve optimal functional results. It is mandatory to assess not only defecation disorders but also evaluate overall pelvic floor symptoms, such as fecal incontinence and urinary disorders for choosing an appropriate and tailored strategy. Radiological investigation is essential but may not explain complaints of every patient.
