Contour Transtar in True Rectal Prolapse

    Summary

    Abstract                          

    Background:

    A new device, the CCS-30 Contour Transtar, was recently launched for the treatment of obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS).

    Objectives:

    To evaluate the efficacy of the Contour Transtar in resection of true rectal prolapse in relation to age and concomitant urogynecologic procedures.

    Methods:

    During a 50 (median) month period 15 women with rectal prolapse of ≥ 5 cm and complaints of obstructed defecation underwent perineal resection of rectal prolapse with the Contour Transtar.

    Results:

    In 3 of the 15 patients (20%) rectal prolapse recurred. Amelioration of ODS symptoms and improved continence were noted in 82% and 75%, respectively, following surgery.

    Conclusions:

    The Contour Transtar procedure for full-thickness rectal prolapse is a safe and promising procedure and is likely suitable for elderly poor risk patients.
