PROSPER: a randomised comparison of surgical treatments for rectal prolapse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Rectal prolapse is a profoundly disabling condition, occurring mainly in elderly and parous women. There is no accepted standard surgical treatment, with previous studies limited in methodological quality and size. PROSPER aimed to address these deficiencies by comparing the relative merits of different procedures.
