Error: This is required. Error: Not a valid value. This page will give you information about a posterior repair.
Depending on the side of the defect, the repair can either be anterior, posterior, vault or total. The repair is achieved by the placement of permanent mesh that may result in a stronger repair. Serious complications are rare with this type of surgery.
Anterior vaginal wall repair is a surgical procedure used to correct a condition called vaginal prolapse. In the case of a vaginal prolapse, your bladder or urethra slips down into your vagina. Your urethra is the tube that carries urine out of your body.
Colporrhaphy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that repairs and strengthens the vaginal wall after a pelvic organ prolapse POP. A pelvic organ prolapse occurs when one of the organs in the pelvic floor region slips out of its normal location in the body. This displacement may cause a number of unwanted symptoms as the prolapsed organ pushes against the walls of the vagina. When nonsurgical treatment methods such as Kegel exercisespelvic floor therapypessary insertion or hormone therapy fail to alleviate symptoms, surgical repair may be a recommended course of action.
Posterior repair is performed in conjunction with perineorrhaphy to correct a rectocele and to reconstruct the perineal body. A rectocele is a hernia that develops when the perirectal fascia is insufficient to support the anterior rectal wall and the rectum prolapses through the levator sling. The strength of the posterior vaginal mucosa is insufficient to prevent prolapse of the anterior rectal wall.
Anterior and posterior repair are minimally invasive procedures used to correct pelvic organs that have dropped out of their normal positions. When the tissues that support the pelvic organs become weak, stretched or damaged, due to age or childbirth for example, the organs can slip out of place, dropping down and pressing against the walls of the vagina. This is known as pelvic organ prolapse.
Anterior vaginal wall repair is a surgical procedure. This surgery tightens the front anterior wall of the vagina. Anterior vaginal wall repair is a procedure performed to improve urinary continence.
Prolapse is a weakness of the supporting structures of the vagina, allowing the pelvic organs to press against the vaginal wall, producing a bulge. This can cause pressure, discomfort, change in bladder or bowel function, and sometimes pain. Prolapse is not dangerous or life-threatening but it can be distressing and inconvenient, limiting physical and sexual activity.
This is the surgical repair of either the front anterior or rear posterior vaginal walls, or sometimes both, to treat a vaginal prolapse. Colporrhaphy is the surgical repair of either the front anterior or rear posterior vaginal walls, or sometimes both, to treat a vaginal prolapse. A colporrhaphy returns the prolapsed organ back to its natural position, repairs the wall tissue and can strengthen the structure of the vagina to help prevent a prolapse reoccurring.
