Abstract: 

Rectal prolapse is a condition wherein the entire rectal wall protrudes through the anus; it can cause various functional difficulties that significantly compromise the patients’ quality of life. Progressive loss of function of the underlying pelvic structures (muscles and ligaments) results in fecal, urinary or concomitant urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic pain, defecation disorders and rectal bleeding. Full thickness rectal prolapse does not respond to medical treatments and the definitive treatment for this condition is surgery. More than 100 surgical methods have been described for surgical treatment of this condition. However, a consensus has not been reached in selecting a preferred method of surgery. Therefore, method of choice is selected based on the surgeon’s experience and clinical findings (1-3).
