Disease relevance of Rectocele

  • At a mean follow-up of 6.3 months (range 1-17 months), 2 patients (12%) had mild, asymptomatic vaginal vault descensus but no patients (0/17) had evidence of a recurrent enterocele or rectocele [1].

High impact information on Rectocele


Chemical compound and disease context of Rectocele

  • There was a statistically significant difference between MR imaging diagnosis of rectocele in patients in the straining position without and with contrast ( p < 0.05), and the difference was more prominent in patients using polyethylene glycol solution ( p < 0.001) [5].
  • CONCLUSION: Barium trapping in rectoceles changes with the degree of rectal evacuation [6].
  • MR rectography evaluation of rectoceles with oral gadopentetate dimeglumine and polyethylene glycol solution [5].
  • One case of recurrent rectocele was observed (after 20 months) and treated by transvaginal Richter sacrospinous fixation [7].

Gene context of Rectocele

  • We investigated the hypothesis that a weak BCM and PRM share in the genesis of rectocele by changing the rectovaginal pressure gradient [8].
