Sutureless laparoscopic rectopexy for procidentia. Technique and implications.

Procedures for treating rectal prolapse may constitute some of the best applications for colorectal laparoscopic techniques. Although the condition is benign, rectal prolapse is often debilitating and frequently progressive in terms of functional limitations. Moreover, many patients are elderly, medically unfit, or both. A technique that afforded relief of prolapse and of incontinence by laparoscopic rectal sacropexy, performed without sutures, using a newly designed laparoscopic sacral tacker and laparoscopic staples, is described. Indications, contraindications, technical details, and surgical implications are discussed. Laparoscopic pelvic suspension procedures are presented as realistic and appropriate objectives for colon and rectal surgeons.
