  • 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.
