Rectopexy with and Without Sigmoid Resection
To achieve adequate long-term functional results in patients with rectal prolapse, either open or laparoscopically, a careful preoperative evaluation and the selection of the appropriate surgical technique based on the physiologic parameters of the specific patient are required. If these principles are applied to laparoscopy, there is no reason to believe that our long-term results will be less optimal than those achieved in the best series of conventional open approach, while the advantages of a less invasive technique will then benefit this patient population.
