Résumé

L'entérocèle est une hernie intrapelvienne contenant des structures iléales. Elle est principalement (mais non exclusivement observée) après chirurgie pelvienne (hystérectomie). Les malades ayant une entérocèle souffrent de pesanteurs pelviennes et d'une procidence vaginale ou rectale. En revanche, les symptômes de dyschésie ou de constipation ne sont probablement pas secondaires à l'entérocèle. L'examen clinique sous-estime souvent la présence d'une entérocèle: son diagnostic repose de ce fait, sur une exploration radiologique comme la défécographie.

Summary

Enterocele is an intra-pelvic hernia with an ileal content. It is mainly (but not exclusively) encountered in patients with a history of pelvic surgery (hysterectomy). Patients with enterocele frequently complain of pelvic heaviness and vaginal or rectal procidence. Dyschesia and constipation, however, are probably not related to enterocele. The clinical examination often underestimates the occurrence of enterocele, and thus its diagnosis relies upon a radiological exploration such as defecography.
