Abstract

Background: Rectal prolapse (RP) is a protrusion of the rectum through the anus. In the literature, it seems established that sclerotherapy is the best second line minimally invasive method. The purpose of this work is to review the effectiveness of this technique in a context where surgical procedures still seems to be very used.

Method: We carried out a prospective cross-sectional study over 04 years concerning 20 patients who had recurrent RP and had a lauromacrogol 400 (Aetoxisclerol 2%) submucosal perirectal sclerotherapy.

Results: After an average follow-up of 28 months, complete healing was achieved in 100% of cases. Only one injection was required for 19 patients (95%). One patient required a second injection in connection with a rupture of the dosage form used. No complications were reported.

Conclusion: Sclerotherapy is an effective and simple method that any team should give themselves the means to put in place in the treatment of recurrent RP.
