Proficiency gain curve and predictors of outcome for laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Laparoscopic ventral mesh rectopexy (LVMR) is a well-recognized treatment for rectal prolapse and high-grade rectal intussusception. However, it is technically complex with the possibility of clinically relevant morbidity. The objectives were to define (i) the efficacy and safety of LVMR, (ii) risk factors for poor clinical outcome, and (iii) the… (More)
