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.
