Definition: Small bowel prolapse, also called enterocele (EN-tur-o-seel), occurs when the small intestine (small bowel) descends into the lower pelvic cavity and pushes at the top part of the vagina, creating a bulge. The word "prolapse" means to slip or fall out of place.
Symptoms: A pulling sensation in your pelvis that eases when you lie down, A feeling of pelvic fullness, pressure or pain, Low back pain that eases when you lie down, A soft bulge of tissue in your vagina, Vaginal discomfort and painful intercourse (dyspareunia).
Statistics: In multi-variate ordinal logistic regression the variables of Body Mass Index (BMI) Maximum Birth Weight (MBW) and delivery mode were the most important factors for prediction of prolapse stage. The sensitivity and specificity of multi-variate ordinal logistic, as a screening test, were 95.7% and 48.7% respectively.
