What is Rectal Prolapse?

When rectal tissue abnormally stretches and protrudes from the anus, then rectal prolapse occurs. This condition is developed because of various reasons such as-

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Weakening of the anal sphincter
  • Injury to the anal or pelvic areas
  • Damage to nerves
  • Other diseases and infections
  • Long-term history of straining during bowel movements


  • Feeling of a bulge or the appearance of reddish-colored mass that extends outside the anus
  • Pain in the anus and rectum
  • Rectal bleeding from the inner lining of the rectum
  • Fecal incontinence referring to leakage of mucus, blood or stool from the anus
  • Develop an ulcer on the part of your rectum that sticks out


  • Abdominal repair approaches
  • At an initial stage, your doctor may offer bulking laxatives, such as Fybogel
  • For children, the doctor may recommend an injection of a substance called a sclerosant
  • Minimally Invasive Rectopexy uses smaller incisions and is much more advantageous to other procedures.
  • Rectal (perineal) repair approaches, which can further be categorized into-
    • Altemeier Procedure
    • Delorme Procedure
