Abstract

Enteroceles are visualised by defaecography and have frequently been described, mostly in the form of case reports [2, 4–6, 12, 19, 25, 26]. Gynaecologists are often confronted by the consequences of enteroceles [1, 3, 7, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20–24, 27–30]. During routine gynaecological examinations, the frequency of enterocele is about 2%–3% [17]. However, in patients requiring major gynaecological procedures, Ranney [22] noted an incidence of 18.1%.
