To the Editor: The long-term functional outcomes in the three cases of swimming pool filter-induced transrectal evisceration described by Price and colleagues1 are excellent and significantly better than many other cases described in the literature. However, it may be possible to improve further on such results, or at least decrease short-term morbidity, by expediting the reduction of the eviscerated bowel.
