AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of modified mesh rectopexy for complete rectal prolapse. SUBJECT AND METHODS: In a prospective study between 1989-1998, 47 patients (25 males and 22 females) underwent modified mesh rectopexy using a «DQ»Cross-shaped«DQ» knitted monofilament polypropylene. They were followed up for a period of four years postoperatively. RESULTS: Anatomical repair was achieved in all patients. Preoperative constipation, a complaint in 22 patients, was relieved in 13 patients and need for laxatives decreased in another four. There were no new cases of constipation. Sexual functions were not hampered irrespective of gender. The complications included prolonged ileus (4 patients), faecal impaction (1), partial mucosal prolapse (2) and post-operative obstruction (2). There was no recurrence. CONCLUSION: This technique aligns the rectum, avoids excessive mobilisation and division of lateral ligaments thus preventing constipation and preserving potency. We recommend this technique for patients with complete rectal prolapse with up to grade 1, 2 and 3 incontinence based on Browning and Parks classification.
