Surgical Therapy

Rectal prolapse in children is generally treated conservatively, whereas surgical repair is suggested for adults. In 1912, Moschcowitz presented his theory that rectal prolapse is a sliding hernia and he suggested obliteration of the deep cul-de-sac of Douglas as treatment, but this method had a high recurrence rate.

Today both abdominal and perineal approaches are used. Abdominal approaches include different types of rectal suspension and fixation and they usually have low recurrence rates (Table 89-1). Perineal approaches have higher recurrence rates and they are usually reserved for elderly patients or patients with concomitant health problems.
