Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

Outcomes of laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy are well known, but data on intra-operative adverse events is scant. A multicenter pool-analysis of prospectively collected database on 1384 patients with internal/external rectal prolapse toke place. Overall 72 (5%) patients experienced complications, 41 discovered and managed intraoperatively, 22 postoperative complications, and 9 required readmission. Despite accepted lower rate of morbidity, these results come from four well equipped European centers by four surgeons practiced at least 200 LVMR.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase
  • Procedure: Laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy

Detailed Description

Multicenter pooled-analysis of LVMR for internal/external rectal prolapse. All events occurred and discovered intra-operatively or passed undiagnosed and appeared within 30-days postoperatively (same admission/readmission) will included, with classification according to the Clavien-Dindo classification.

Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/Treatment
Experimental: Rectal Prolapse

Patients with rectal prolapse, who will underwent laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy. The implemented mesh may be synthetic or biological.

Procedure: Laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy
Laparoscopic opening of the Daglous pouch, dissection till reach the levator ani muscle, mesh implementation and fixation, closure of the daglous. The mesh implemented may be synthetic or biological mesh.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. intra-operative complications [30 days postoperative]

    All complications occur during the operation and discovered and managed during the operation or passed undiscovered and discovered postoperative during the same admission or require readmission
