Disease Definition: A small posterior prolapse may cause no signs or symptoms. Disease Symptoms: Anterior Vaginal Wall Prolapse (Cystocele or Urethrocele) Anterior vaginal wall prolapse often occurs at the top of the vagina where the uterus used to be in women who have had a hysterectomy. Posterior Wall Prolapse (Rectocele or Enterocele). Apical Prolapse (Vaginal Vault Prolapse) or Uterine Prolapse. Rectal Prolapse. Disease Treatment: Childbirth and other processes that put pressure on the fascia can lead to posterior prolapse. A small prolapse may cause no signs or symptoms. If a posterior prolapse is large, it may create a noticeable bulge of tissue through the vaginal opening. Though this bulge may be uncomfortable, it's rarely painful.
statistics:"During the operation, the surgeon will make cuts and place stitches very close to the bowel. Rarely, the surgeon may make a hole in it by accident. Usually this can be repaired straight way and the operation finished as normal. However, it may affect your recovery and your surgeon will want to explain what has happened when they see you on the ward the next day."
