Prolapse Rectum - Herbertpur

The term prolapsed rectum was discovered as early as 1500 BC. The disease appears when a mucosal or full-thickness layer of rectal tissue comes out of the anal orifice. The patient facing issues like constipation, fecal incontinence and rectal ulceration are prone to suffer from rectal prolapse.

Three different clinical problems are clubbed under one disease: Internal prolapse or internal intussusception, Mucosal Prolapse, Full-thickness rectal prolapse. Treatment for Prolapse Rectum in India: Though three different medical conditions are brought under one term but the treatment of these three are totally different. Internal prolapse or internal intussusceptions – It is a medical condition that occurs with a partial or full-thickness rectal wall disorder, but the prolapsed anal tissues do not go beyond the anal canal and do not protrude out of the anus.

Mucosal prolapse is described as the jutting out of only the rectal mucosa not the complete rectal wall. Full-thickness rectal prolapsed is a medical condition in which the patient suffers from the full thickness of the rectal wall protrusion through anus. This is most common form of this disease diagnosed in patients.

Pathophysiology: Though the medical still haven’t entirely understood or agreed upon the pathophysiology of the disease. But still there are two main theories behind it that are generally explaining the same thought in varied ways. One of the main theory states that the disease is a sliding hernia due to a medical defect in the pelvic fascia. Another theory postulates the medical condition begins as circumferential internal intussusceptions of the rectum starting 6-8cm proximal to the anal end. With efforts and time, this development to full-thickness rectal prolapsed, however some sufferers never progress further than this stage.

Although the etiology and pathophysiology of mucosal prolapse probably differ from those of internal prolapse and full-thickness rectal prolapse. The patients suffer from it when the connecting tissue attachments of the rectal mucosa are stretched and slackened, thus letting the tissue to prolapsed through the anus. This generally happens due to continuous long- standing hemorrhoid disease and is treated for the same. Generally, the disease starts with an internal prolapse of the interior rectal wall that progresses to the complete prolapse.

Etiology: The exact cause of the disease has still not been clarified yet; although, quite a few related medical conditions have been discovered. Almost around 50% of the cases occur due to constipation and chronic straining with defecation. Some other presumed issues comprises of the following Pregnancy, Previous surgery, Diarrhea, Benign prostatic hypertrophy, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Cystic fibrosis, Pertussis, Pelvic floor dysfunction, Parasitic infections such as schistosomiasis, amebiasis, etc. Neurologic disorders - Previous lower back or pelvic trauma/lumbar disk disease, cauda equina syndrome, spinal tumors, multiple sclerosis. Disordered defecation.

Some of the anatomic traits identified during treatment for prolapsed rectum are generally common in most of the patients. These comprise of a deep anterior Douglas cul-de-sac, weak or patulous anal sphincter with levator diastasis, redundant rectosigmoid and poor posterior rectal fixation with a long rectal mesentery. However, it is not confirmed that these anatomic characteristics are the actual cause of the disease or not. Though, in the kids the disease is most likely due to the relative weakness of the pelvic floor muscle, mucosa that is poorly fixed to sub-mucosa, redundant rectal mucosa, the mobility of the sigmoid colon, and the vertical orientation of the rectum.
