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:Usually 2 permanent stitches are placed into one or two tough fibrous structure known as the sacrospinous or uterosacral ligament. The stitches are then secured to the top of the vagina just beneath the skin. Sometimes the procedure is done on both sides and usually performed along with one of the other procedures listed on this page. This stitch may cause some temporary discomfort in the buttock which may persist for up to three months.
