  • Local repair of stoma prolapse: Case report of an in vivo application of linear stapler devices. [Journal Article]
  • Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2016; 11:32-5AM
  • Monette MM, Harney RT, … Chu DI
  • CONCLUSIONS: We detail in step-wise fashion a technique using linear stapler devices that can be used to locally revise prolapsed stoma segments and therefore avoid a laparotomy. The procedure is technically easy to perform with satisfactory post-operative outcomes. We additionally review all previous reports of local repairs and show the evolution of local prolapse repair to the currently reported technique.This report offers surgeons an alternative, efficient and effective option for addressing the complications of stoma prolapse. While future studies are needed to assess long-term outcomes, in the short-term, our report confirms the safety and effectiveness of this local technique.
  • Short term outcome of laparoscopic ventral rectopexy for rectal prolapse. [Journal Article]
  • Pak J Med Sci 2016 Jul-Aug; 32(4):875-9PJ
  • Naeem M, Anwer M, Qureshi MS
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study provides the limited evidence that nerve sparing laparoscopic ventral rectopexy is safe and effective treatment of external and symptomatic internal rectal prolapse. It has better cosmetic and functional outcome as advantages of minimal access and comparable recurrence rate.
  • Rectal prolapse traumatizes rectal neuromuscular microstructure explaining persistent rectal dysfunction. [Journal Article]
  • Int J Colorectal Dis 2016 Sep 6IJ
  • Kraemer M, Paulus W, … Rozsnoki S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Rectal prolapse traumatizes the rectum causing neuromuscular defects. The tissue trauma is due to shearing forces and ischemia caused by the intussusception. This initiates a self-reinforcing vicious circle of physical and functional obstruction, further impairing rectal evacuation and causing constipation and incontinence. The correlation between extent of prolapse and age suggests that internal rectal prolapse can be considered a degenerative disorder. Neural and motor defects in the wall of the rectum caused by rectal prolapse are likely irreversible.
  • Optimizing Treatment for Rectal Prolapse. [Journal Article]
  • Clin Colon Rectal Surg 2016; 29(3):271-6CC
  • Hrabe J, Gurland B
  • Rectal prolapse is associated with debilitating symptoms and leads to both functional impairment and anatomic distortion. Symptoms include rectal bulge, mucous drainage, bleeding, incontinence, const...
