Rectal Prolapse

    Overview

    Rectal prolapse is a condition in which part of the large intestine slips, or prolapses, through the anus. Rectal prolapse can create an inability to control bowel movements, causing stool to leak from the rectum. Early management includes fluids and pelvic floor exercises. Most patients will eventually need surgery.
