• mucous
  • Mucous discharges can be thought of in three broad categories: Normal physiologically produced mucus Inappropriately expressed physiologically produced mucus (e.g. in the presence of sphincter defects, or lesions preventing normal sphincter closure, allowing seepage or soiling) Mucus produced in pathological quantities (e.g. from a lesion, or generalized coloproctitis or as a result of bacterial overgrowth) A mucous rectal discharge may be blood-streaked.

  • occur
  • Pregnancy and the stresses of childbirth can weaken the muscles causing rectal prolapse to occur. (hemorrhoidshemroids.com)
  • Abdominal pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, weight loss, and fatigue occur as the migrated larvae grow into adults and mate in the gastrointestinal system. (iamat.org)
  • However, other types occur, such as when a part of the ileum or jejunum prolapses into itself. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infections can result in acute fever, acute abdominal cramping, cramping rectal pain, nausea, watery diarrhea, or blood, mucus, or pus in the stool, which may occur within 1-7 days after coming in contact with the bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rectal prolapse can occur while straining during bowel movements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Haemorrhoids occur due to prolapse of the rectal venous plexus and are no more common in patients with portal hypertension than those without. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unlike oesophageal varices, rectal varices are less prone to bleeding, are less serious when a bleed does occur, and are easier to treat because of the more accessible location. (wikipedia.org)
  • anus
  • Rectal prolapse is a very disabling disease, and although its etiopathogenesis has not yet been well established, it is frequently associated with other abnormalities, including patulous anus, levator ani muscle diastasis, mesorectum elongation, deep pouch of Douglas, redundant rectosigmoid and increased width of the retrorectal space. (springer.com)
  • Rectoanal intussusception (RAI) is a partial or total rectal invagination without protrusion from the anus. (springer.com)
  • Excision
  • Because of this, surgeons will generally reserve formal excision for the most severe cases of prolapse, or for patients who have failed to respond to conventional treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • anorectal
  • Cystic fibrosis, COPD, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, or any chronic condition or activity that necessitates frequent exploration or invasion of the anorectal canal, may lead to muscle weakness and resulting rectal prolapse. (hemorrhoidshemroids.com)
  • Finally, the anal opening was not designed by evolution for sexual penetration, so anal sex, being an activity involving the invasion of the anorectal canal, can cause the muscles to give way, thereby leading to rectal prolapse. (hemorrhoidshemroids.com)
  • include
  • Later signs include rectal bleeding, often with "red currant jelly" stool (stool mixed with blood and mucus), and lethargy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Radiological signs of bowel obstruction include bowel distension and the presence of multiple (more than six) gas-fluid levels on supine and erect abdominal radiographs. (wikipedia.org)
  • discharge
  • The differential diagnosis of rectal discharge is extensive, but the general etiological themes are infection and inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • uterus
  • Relating to the uterus, prolapse condition results in an inferior extension of the organ into the vagina, caused by weakened pelvic muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prolapsed uterus in cattle, particularly dairy cattle, generally occurs in the first 12 hours post-calving. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] with newborn lamb with afterbirth stained uterus (12 hours out) before re-positioning Rectal prolapse is a condition routinely identified in pigs on farms and at slaughterhouses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Disorders
  • Smoking, obesity, connective tissue disorders, upper respiratory disorders‚ and repetitive strain injuries can all increase prolapse risk. (wikipedia.org)
