Rectal Prolapse

Rectal Prolapse is a condition in which the end of the rectum bulges or protrudes out of the anal canal. The muscles supporting the area between the anus and the genitalia become stretched or weakened.   This disorder is more common in the older population and usually results from straining during bowel movements.

Symptoms
In its earliest stages, rectal prolapse may not be evident outside the body. The first symptoms may be fecal incontinence and a discharge of mucus or blood from the rectum.  Often, the condition is temporary, and the end of the rectum can be pushed into the anal canal with a finger.  Nevertheless, as time goes on, straining may cause the rectum to distend farther from the rectum.  A rectal prolapse is diagnosed with a procedure called a defecogram, in which an x-ray video is taken of the rectum while a person defecates. 

Treatment Options
Treatment depends on the individual’s age, general health, and the severity of the disorder.  Rectal prolapse in children is usually corrected with a high-fiber diet.  In adults, I might implant a band of elastic wire or nylon around the anus muscle to help support the rectum and to keep it in place.  Rectal surgery may involve raising and repositioning the rectum or removing tissue from the rectum; however; this surgery is not always successful at curing the disorder.
