Rectal prolapse is a condition where the rectum, or part of it, loses its proper position within the body, becomes mobile, stretches and exits through the anus. Rectal prolapse is divided into two types: internal (hidden) and external. Internal prolapse of the rectum differs from the external in that the rectum has already lost its position, but has not yet come out. Rectal prolapse is often accompanied by weakening of the anal muscles, which leads to incontinence of gas, feces and mucus.
The problem of rectal prolapse occurs in our patients quite often. This condition is also known as rectal prolapse or pelvic floor prolapse and is more common in women than men. In women, pregnancy and childbirth are the main factors in the development of rectal prolapse. The prerequisites for the onset of the disease in men may be regular physical activity or the habit of strong straining. Rectal prolapse usually does not cause pain at the very beginning of the development of the disease. The main problems with rectal prolapse for patients are a feeling of discomfort and a foreign body in the anus, as well as an unaesthetic appearance, which significantly worsens the quality of human life.
Our Clinic provides the entire spectrum of rectal prolapse treatment. Based on the stage of the disease and its manifestation, our specialists select the most optimal method of treatment. It is important to understand that rectal prolapse is a complex disease that cannot be treated without surgery. For the treatment of rectal prolapse, our Clinic uses the following surgical techniques:
Abdominal surgeries (operations through the abdominal cavity)
1. Rectosacropexy operation - a mesh allograft (alloprosthesis) is used for it, which holds the intestine in a given position. During the operation, the rectum is mobilized to the level of the muscles that lift the anus, then the rectum is pulled up and fixed to the presacral fascia located between the sacrum and the rectum using a mesh allograft.
2. Kummel's operation is fixation of the previously mobilized rectum to the promontory of the sacrum with interrupted sutures.
These operations can be performed both by open access through incisions (laparotomy) and laparoscopic through small punctures.
