The most common perineal repair procedures are the Altemeier and Delorme procedures. The Delormes procedure refers to the resection of the inner lining (mucosa) of the prolapsed rectum. The exposed muscular layer is then folded and stitched up and the cut edges of mucosa stitched together.

Kegel exercises are vital to improve the results of this and all pelvic floor surgery to enhance the success of the repair. Kegel8 has clinically approved programmes to help with prolpase and a weak pelvic floor.

If you have a rectal prolapse you are more likely to suffer a bladder prolapse so it is vital to kegel exercise to ensure other pelvic organs do not prolapse.
