We talked with one of the Barcelona 2014 keynote speakers, Professor Evaghelos Xynos (Crete, Greece), who presented different treatment options for rectal prolapse in Barcelona. What is known about the causes/etiology of rectal prolapse? The condition is far more common in the aged female, and associated with chronic constipation, excessive straining at defaecation and neurological disorders affecting pelvic floor structures. Multiparity does not seem to be aetiologically related to the condition.
