Device: Colorectal Stent
Diagnosis of an internal rectal prolapse:
The device will be introduced and placed into the patient via a proctoscopic procedure. After that the doctor can measure and determine the internal rectal prolapse. After the diagnosis results have been received, the device will be removed from the patient via proctoscopic examination. The whole procedure will take approx. 5 minutes.
An additional X-ray examination procedure with the use of contrast media will be made for the determination of a pelvic floor ptosis and for the determination of an internal hernia into the Douglas pouch.
- Determination if the device will be effective for the diagnosis of an internal rectal prolapse, a pelvic floor ptosis and for the determination of an internal hernia into the Douglas pouch. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
- Determination if the the use of the device will be tolerated by the patient combined with a low level of pain or discomfort. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
