Rectal Prolapse: Diagnosis and Clinical Management by Raffaele De Caro, Andrea Porzionato, Veronica Macchi

By Raffaele De Caro, Andrea Porzionato, Veronica Macchi (auth.), Donato F. Altomare, Filippo Pucciani (eds.)

The pathophysiology of exterior rectal prolapse remains to be doubtful, and its scientific and instrumental diagnostic review in addition to the ideal surgical or scientific process have to be clarified. The relative rarity of this pathology prevents randomised, managed trials from being performed in one establishment and the reviews of remarkable leaders during this box are hence fairly vital. With this collaborative, multiauthor paintings, the editors fulfil that requirement by way of drawing jointly the event of hugely regarded nationwide and overseas pros. the amount includes large and helpful information about most well liked tools of comparing sufferers with rectal prolapse: its underlying aetiology and pathophysiology, different remedy equipment (both surgical and nonsurgical), the predicted useful effects following surgical procedure and the administration of advanced medical displays linked to this situation. The textual content is augmented with unheard of illustrations, together with either top quality, operative color photos and line drawings, which show basically the correct phases of the technique being mentioned. This quantity is a distinct ebook that covers all features of the situation and may be a invaluable source for surgeons, gastroenterologists, radiologists and different practitioners interested in the administration of this disorder.

They have contributed to the interpretation of rectal prolapse pathophysiology, showing abnormalities in the pelvic floor muscles, including dysfunction of internal and external sphincters and levator ani, possibly related to pelvic floor stretching during pregnancy, labour or a long history of constipation. Relationship with the consequent pudendal neuropathy has been elucidated and pelvic floor weakness suspected as a predisposing condition to rectal protrusion through the anal hiatus. Moreover, neurophysiologic tests have been regarded as having a pivotal significance in selecting patients for treatment and predicting its outcome.

The purpose of electromyography (EMG) is to investigate the electrical activity of the external anal sphincter and the other striated pelvic floor muscles at rest and during squeezing and straining. Over time, four different types of electrodes have been developed: concentric needle, monopolar wire, single-fibre and surface. 1 mm in diameter) covered by an insulating resin, which is able to uptake electrical activity of the small area into which it has been inserted. This needle is unable to record single muscle-fibre action potentials.

This finding presumably corresponds to the intraluminal filling defect of contrast radiography described as grade 1 intussusception, which has a mucosal component only. On the other hand, a circumferential infolding of the rectal wall that descends and penetrates the anal canal with its apex (intraanal intussusception) will determine a different pattern, as follows: taking the hypoechoic internal sphincter as reference, the cross-sectional area of the anal canal measured on straining from the inner border of the sphincter is seen to enlarge until it overcomes the one measured from its outer border by 50%.
