Rectal prolapse is a painless protrusion of the rectum through the anus. The rectum is the section of the digestive tract above the anus where stool is held before it passes out of the body through the anus. The anus is the opening at the end of the digestive tract where stool leaves the body.
Spontaneous rupture of colon or rectum is a rare event. Protrusion of several loops of small bowel through the anal orifice is a bizarre condition which has only rarely been reported in the literature. We report the first case where Thiersch repair was used to manage spontaneous perforation of rectal prolapse and provided a successful outcome.
Rectal prolapse is when the rectal walls have prolapsed to a degree where they protrude out the anus and are visible outside the body. Rectal prolapse may occur without any symptoms, but depending upon the nature of the prolapse there may be mucous discharge mucus coming from the anusrectal bleedingdegrees of fecal incontinence and obstructed defecation symptoms. Rectal prolapse is generally more common in elderly women, although it may occur at any age and in either sex.
A posterior vaginal prolapse, also known as a rectocele, occurs when the wall of fibrous tissue that separates the rectum from the vagina weakens. When this happens, tissues or structures just behind the vaginal wall — in this case, the rectum — can bulge into the vagina. A posterior vaginal wall prolapse occurs when the thin wall of tissue that separates the rectum from the vagina weakens, allowing the vaginal wall to bulge.
A rectal prolapse is when part of your rectum sticks out through your anus back passage to form a lump. The rectum is the last part of your bowel. You may notice the rectal prolapse when you're having a bowel movement.
This is a widespread condition occurring in good growing pigs from 8 to 20 weeks of age. The onset is sudden. The size of the prolapse varies from 10 to 80mm and if small it will often revert to the rectum spontaneously.
Rectal prolapse is a medical condition in which the rectum starts to push through the anus. The rectum is that last part of your large intestine, and the anus is the opening through which stool exits your body. Rectal prolapse affects about 2.
Your rectum is the lower part of your colon, where stool forms. If the rectum drops out of its normal place within the body and pushes out of the anal opening, the condition is called rectal prolapse. In the early stages, a prolapse may happen only after a bowel movement.
This information may also be useful to the friends, families, and caregivers of patients dealing with rectal prolapse. Treatment of this condition may often require surgery, and this patient education material is intended for patients with rectal prolapse who are considering or have been recommended surgery. It will address why surgery may have been recommended, what the various treatment options are, what it involves and how it may help patients.
