Rectal prolapse refers to protuberance of the lower end of the large bowel (rectum) via the anal opening (anal orifice). Prolapse of the rectum may be categorized as either incomplete (partial), complete or internal.


Incomplete rectal prolapse, also called rectal mucosal prolapse, happens when only the inner tissue layer (mucosa) of the rectum projects via the anus. In complete rectal prolapse, the full viscosity of the rectal wall (the muscular layer) projects via the anus. Internal prolapse transpires when either the mucosal layer or the muscular layer downfalls into the rectum but the prolapsed tissue does not overhang beyond the anal duct or outside the body. The reason of rectal prolapse is not scrupulously understood. However, factors that may put an individual in jeopardy for developing this ailment include poor bowel habits (particularly constipation), neurological illness (caudaequina lesion, spinal cord injury, senility), a feeble internal anal sphincter (patulous anus), some surgical techniques (hemorrhoidectomy, fistulectomy, abdomino-anal pull-through) and numerous anatomical abnormalities.

Persons with rectal prolapse will generally report that their rectum can be seen bulging from their anus. Other grumbles may include trouble in bowel regulation (fecal incontinence), a feeling of incomplete clearing following a bowel movement, uneasiness in the area near the anus (perianal region), mucus discharge from the anus, obstinate spasms of the rectum escorted by the craving to defecate (tenesmus)and rectal bleeding.
