A rectal prolapse is where a mucosal or full-thickness layer of rectal tissue overhangs out of the anus. It is a reasonably uncommon condition, which chiefly affects females greater than 30 years of age. There are two chief categories of rectal prolapse:

  • Partial thickness – the rectal mucosa bulges out of the anus
  • Full thickness – the rectal wall overhangs out the anus

The present theories surrounding full prolapse recommend that is a form of slithering hernia, via a defect of the fascia of the pelvic region. This might be initiated by chronic straining secondary to constipation, a chronic cough or from multiple vaginal deliveries. In contrast, partial thickness prolapses are related with the loosening and stretching of the connective tissue that fastens the rectal mucosa to the rest of the rectal wall. This often befall sin combination with long standing haemorrhoidal disease. To treat this illness, countless individuals resort to surgical methods. However, it is not safe to undergo a surgery.
