Rectal Prolapse is a condition where a part of the rectum comes out of the anus.
The rectum which is the last part of the large intestine loses the normal attachments that keep it fixed inside the body, allowing it to slide out through the anal opening, turning it “inside out.”
It is like a opening of a telescope.
It can be embarrassing and has a negative effect on a patient’s quality of life. Although not always required, the most effective treatment for rectal prolapse is surgery.
Chronic constipation and piles
Here the entire thickness and circumference of the rectum “telescopes” out of the anus.
Surgery is the main stay of the treatment.
The mechanical loss of support to the rectum is restored.
Rectum is restored back to its normal position in the belly.
This condition requires more extensive surgeries like resection rectopexy.
