Is anal prolapse good

Anal prolapse

Therapy for anal prolapse differs depending on its severity and severity. In very mild cases, the mucous membrane can usually be pushed back with a finger. Sometimes a doctor is not even necessary for this, but those affected can try to push back the protruding skin for themselves.

If pushing back is not possible, the most common therapy for partial anal prolapse is so-called sclerotherapy. In this procedure, a drug is injected directly into the protruding skin. This medicine causes the folds of skin to shrink so that they can pull back into the anus. Above all, when anal prolapse occurs in combination with hemorrhoids, the method of sclerotherapy is used.

An alternative to sclerotherapy is the so-called ligature treatment. In this case, the protruding skin fold is tied off - usually with small rubber rings. The tissue is no longer supplied with blood and subsequently dies. It usually falls off on its own after about three days. The resulting wound in the intestine then heals.

If there is a circular, total anal prolapse or very persistent cases of partial anal prolapse, an operation is necessary in most cases. In this case, the mucous membrane is pushed back into the anus and fixed there so that it can no longer protrude.

To protect themselves from further anal prolapse, people who are more prone to constipation should eat a diet that is high in fiber. It is also important to drink enough fluids to prevent constipation.
