  • Look Inside

We performed laparoscopic suture rectopexy on seven cases of full-thickness rectal prolapse from March 2001 to August 2004. The mean age was 78 years, and all patients were female. Our procedure consists of the mobilization of the rectum at the plane of total mesorectal excision with the division of bilateral lateral ligament and the suture of the rectum to the presacral fascia without using a mesh. Sigmoid colon resection was per-formed in 2 patients; one had multiple polyps in the sigmoid colon, and the other had an elongated sigmoid colon. We used five ports in all cases.
