Rectal Prolapse


Rectal prolapse is a relatively common debilitating condition with both functional and anatomic sequelae. Rectal prolapse can occur in all age groups as a result of functional bowel and pelvic floor disorders. Throughout the past century, more than 100 different surgical procedures have been described and there is no consensus regarding the best technique. Recurrence rates for complete rectal prolapse have been reported as high as 20-50 percent. The ideal surgical approach to treat these recurrences remains an unresolved problem. The goal of this webinar is to discuss the evaluation, workup surgical management, and outcomes of rectal prolapse in different subgroups of patients.
