Internal intussusception

Internal intussusception

Internal intussusception of the rectum is a medical symptom associated with straining to defecate, usually associated with chronic constipation and diagnosed by defecography. Surgical interventions to correct the problem have exhibited limited success, usually treating the intussusception but not always relieving the patient's symptoms.
