Summary of "Perineal rectosigmoidectomy (Altemeier's procedure) for the treatment of full-thickness rectal prolapse - video vignette."

In this video, we demonstrate the Altemeier's Procedure (perineal rectosigmoidectomy) in an 85-year-old woman with long-standing faecal incontinence secondary to a full thickness rectal prolapse. This was carried out under general anaesthesia with the patient placed in lithotomy. Exposure was facilitated using a Long Star retractor (CooperSurgical Inc., Trumbull, Connecticut, USA). The prolapsed rectum was fully everted and a circumferential electrocautery incision was made approximately 1-2 cm distal to the dentate line. This article is protected by copyright.
