Overview

Pelvic floor reconstruction is a surgical solution recommended for women experiencing pain and discomfort due to pelvic organ prolapse. Let’s explore the details:

  1. Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP):
    • Common condition affecting about 35% of women.
    • Linked to strain during childbirth, weakening pelvic muscles and tissues.
    • Organs (rectum, uterus, vagina, bladder) may shift from their normal positions.
  2. Symptoms of POP:
    • Feeling something falling out of the vagina.
    • Urinary incontinence (bladder problems).
    • Pressure against the vaginal wall.
    • Fullness in the lower belly.
    • Groin discomfort or lower back pain.
    • Bowel movement issues (constipation).
    • Pain during sex.
  3. Types of Pelvic Prolapse:
    • Vaginal Vault Prolapse: Upper vagina sags into the canal or outside.
    • Cystocele: Bladder droops into the vagina.
    • Enterocele: Small intestine herniates into the vaginal cavity.
    • Rectocele: Rectum presses against the vaginal wall.
  4. Treatment Approach:
    • Nonsurgical Therapies First: Attempt conservative management.
    • Pelvic Floor Reconstructive Surgery:
      • Corrects organ prolapse.
      • Restores normal pelvic structure and function.
      • Early detection improves quality of life.
