Rectal prolapse Surgery

Rectal prolapse Surgery

Resection (standard or laparoscopic approach) of redundant colon and rectum with a rectal fixation (rectopexy) is generally associated with the best long-term results in patients who are fit for a major operation.

For patients at higher risk for major surgery, other procedures have been described, including narrowing the anal orifice (Thiersch operation) or a perineal rectosigmoidectomy with levator placation (Altemeier procedure).
