Therapeutic effects of the TST36 stapler on rectocele combined with internal rectal prolapse.

World J Gastrointest Surg 2021 May;13(5):443-451

Department of Anorectal Disease, Shenyang Coloproctology Hospital, Shenyang 110000, Liaoning Province, China.

Background: The most common causes of outlet obstructive constipation (OOC) are rectocele and internal rectal prolapse. The surgical methods for OOC are diverse and difficult, and the postoperative complications and recurrence rate are high, which results in both physical and mental pain in patients. With the continuous deepening of the surgeon's concept of minimally invasive surgery and continuous in-depth research on the mechanism of OOC, the treatment concepts and surgical methods are continuously improved.

A step-by-step approach to endorectal proctopexy (ERPP): how we do it.

Tech Coloproctol 2021 Jul 28;25(7):879-886. Epub 2021 May 28.

Department of Colorectal Surgery, S. Rita Clinic, Vercelli, Italy.

There are many surgical treatments aimed at correcting internal mucosal prolapse and rectocele associated with obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS). Perineal procedures can be considered as first options in young men in whom an abdominal approach poses risks of sexual dysfunction and in selected women with isolated posterior compartment prolapse who failed conservative treatment. About 20 years ago, we described endorectal proctopexy (ERPP) also known as internal Delorme procedure. Read More

Refinements in surgical techniques for visualized tunnel formation in laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty.

Pediatr Surg Int 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Capital Institute of Pediatrics, No.2 Yabao Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing, 100020, People's Republic of China.

Purpose: Laparoscopic-assisted anorectoplasty (LAARP) is becoming a more popular procedure for anorectal malformation (ARM) repair. However, the conventional technique for creating pull-through tunnel between the perineal skin and the pelvic floor has been criticized as being semi-blind. This study aims to present a refined version of our previously reported clamp introduction technique for visualized tunnel formation in the center of the sphincter muscle complex (SMC) for rectal pull- through for ARMs. Read More

Long-Term Outcomes of Sectorial Longitudinal Augmented Prolapsectomy for Asymmetric Muco-hemorrhoidal Prolapse: An Observational Study of 433 Consecutive Patients.

Surg Innov 2021 Apr 8:15533506211007292. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Division of General, Mini-invasive and Obesity Surgery, University of Study of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli", Naples, Italy.

Purpose: Hemorrhoidal disease (HD) is a widespread condition severely influencing patients' quality of life. Recently, the large diffusion of stapled hemorrhoidopexy has revealed a new unexpected pathological entity: the asymmetric mucosal prolapse. We aimed to assess the outcomes of the sectorial longitudinal augmented prolapsectomy (SLAP), a technique dedicated to asymmetric prolapse, in terms of HD symptoms, prolapse recurrence, and rectal stenosis.

Absent or impaired rectoanal inhibitory reflex as a diagnostic factor for high-grade (grade III-V) rectal prolapse: a retrospective study.

BMC Gastroenterol 2021 Apr 7;21(1):157. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Surgery, Pusan National University Hospital, 179 Gudeok-ro, Seo-gu, Busan, 49241, Republic of Korea.

Background: Clinically diagnosing high-grade (III-V) rectal prolapse might be difficult, and the prolapse can often be overlooked. Even though defecography is the significant diagnostic tool for rectal prolapse, it is noticed that rectoanal inhibitory reflex (RAIR) can be associated with rectal prolapse. This study investigated whether RAIR can be used as a diagnostic factor for rectal prolapse. Read More

Department of Biology, University of British Columbia Okanagan , Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at increased risk of under-recognized metabolic comorbidities. Chronic intestinal inflammation in IBD along with changes to the gut microbiome leads to broader systemic effects. Despite the existence of multiple animal models to study colitis, limited studies have examined the metabolic abnormalities associated with these models. Read More
