ABSTRACT: A new operation that has been found effective in the treatment of frequently recurring rectal prolapse in children is described. It involves fixing the mucosa to the lateral walls of the anal canal with buttons. The technique is safe, simple and effective for both mucosal prolapse and full thickness rectal prolapse. It is free from major complications. The controversy surrounding the predisposing factors, the nature of the prolapse and the various suggested treatment are highlighted.
