RECTOCELE

A rectocele is a weakening or thinning of the tissue between the lower rectum and vagina.  Although they can often cause no symptoms at all, they may result in increased straining or difficulty with bowel movements or local discomfort.

Transrectal Repair

Rectoceles as described above may be repaired surgically when they are felt to be causing significant symptoms.  This is usually done as an outpatient procedure.  Long-term results of repair can be mixed.
