Pelvic Organ Prolapse

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

    Pathophysiology

    Pelvic organ prolapse is the abnormal descent or herniation of the pelvic organs from their normal attachment sites or their normal position in the pelvis. The pelvic structures that may be involved include the uterus (uterine prolapse) or vaginal apex (apical vaginal prolapse), anterior vagina (cystocele), or posterior vagina (rectocele). Many parous women may have some degree of prolapse when examined; however, most prolapses are not clinically bothersome without specific pelvic symptoms, and they may not require an intervention.

    Disease statistics

    An overall of 256 patients presented with POP and LUTS and underwent POP repair. Most of 50% of patients reported two or more symptoms and only 4.2% were asymptomatic for LUTS. 189/256 (73.8%) patients had voiding symptoms and 39 a urodynamic detrusor overactivity. Thirteen suffered from hydronephrosis. 148/256 (57.8%) showed a stress urinary incontinence. All the patients underwent POP repair with or without contemporary anti- incontinence procedure.

    Treatment

    If you do not have any symptoms or if your symptoms are mild, you do not need any special follow-up or treatment beyond having regular checkups. If you have symptoms, prolapse may be treated with or without surgery. Often the first nonsurgical option tried is a pessary. This device is inserted into the vagina to support the pelvic organs. Targeting specific symptoms may be another option. Kegel exercises may be recommended in addition to symptom-related treatment to help strengthen the pelvic floor. Weight loss can decrease pressure in the abdomen and help improve overall health. If your symptoms are severe and disrupt your life, and if nonsurgical treatment options have not helped, you may want to consider surgery.

    Research

    Research conducted by the Pelvic Floor Disorders Network, an initiative funded by the National Institutes of Health, has revealed that the long-term success rates of a surgery to treat pelvic organ prolapse are lower than expected. Nearly one-third of women develop anatomic or symptomatic treatment failure within five years of undergoing sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse.
