  • Resolution of Rectal Prolapse by Vaginal Reconstruction. [Journal Article]
  • FPFemale Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2016 Nov 28
  • Devakumar H, Chandrasekaran N, … Hurtado E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Usually, the choice of surgical approach is tailored to each individual based on anatomy, age, comorbidity, and patient factors. Correcting both vaginal and rectal prolapse at the same time with a minimally invasive approach is an advantage to the patient. Restoring the apical, anterior, and posterior vaginal wall anatomy and an enterocele repair through the vaginal route caused resolution of the rectal prolapse. Further research is required as to whether rectal prolapse caused by anterior rectal compression needs an additional procedure or repair of the vaginal prolapse and enterocele alone will suffice.
  • Primary and repeated perineal stapled prolapse resection. [Journal Article]
  • TCTech Coloproctol 2016 Nov 25
  • Raahave D, Jensen AK, … Pedersen IK
  • CONCLUSIONS: PSPR is a rather new surgical procedure for external rectal prolapse. Immediate complications are few and not serious. Although recurrences can be treated with a second PSPR, the operation may only be the best option for old and fragile patients with comorbidities and a short life expectancy.
  • Perineal stapled prolapse resection (PSPR) for external rectal prolapse in high morbidity patients. [Journal Article]
  • AIAnn Ital Chir 2016; 87:476-480
  • Maternini M, Guttadauro A, … Gabrielli F
  • CONCLUSIONS: PSPR can be considered among perineal approaches for the treatment of full-thickness rectal prolapse. The reported rate of minor complications is low. No major complications have been described. Functional outcome is good, with marked improvement in both continence and constipation.These results are better than those reported for other perineal procedures, although no randomized trials have yet been published. A multicenter study is needed to better evaluate the indications for and the outcome AFTER PSP.
