In this manuscript, literature about rectal prolapse is reviewed. Rectal prolapse is a rare clinical entity, seen in all ages, but the incidence makes a peak in certain ages and sex. Treatment varies according to the patient and the degree of the pathology. Even though rectal prolapse is known more than 3500 years, its etiology, mechanism and treatment is still on discussion. Notaras abdominal posterior rectopexy is one of the most preferred techniques among more than 100 types of known operations, because of its low complication and recurrence rates. Laparoscopic techniques are being utilized widely, parallel with the achievements in laparoscopic surgical techniques. Finally, today, Notaras posterior rectopexy is one of the most popular surgical abdominal procedures, but we think that laparoscopic rectopexy will take the place of open procedures in the near future.
