Pelvic Prolapse and Laparoscopic Enterocele and Cystocele Repair Pelvic Prolapse is when pelvic supporting tissues have torn away from their normal attachments and pelvic organs fall down. The traditional approach to this problem has been vaginal surgery where the vaginal walls are opened and the supporting tissues (fascia) are sewn together.
Diagnosing and Treating an Enterocele; Diagnosing and Treating a Cystocele . Simply defined, a cystocele is a protrusion of the bladder into the vagina due to defects in pelvic support (Fig. 1. A dropped or prolapsed bladder (cystocele) occurs when the bladder bulges into the vaginal space. It results when the muscles and tissues that support the bladder give way. Anterior vaginal prolapse, also known as a cystocele (SIS-toe-seel) or a prolapsed bladder, is when the bladder drops from its normal position in the pelvis and pushes on. Anterior vaginal wall prolapse is commonly referred to as cystocele or urethrocele (when the bladder or urethra is involved). Posterior vaginal wall prolapse is commonly referred to as enterocele (when the small intestine and peritoneum are involved) and rectocele (when the rectum is involved)

All patients had vaginal prolapse, cystocele, and urinary incontinence. In addition, 34 patients had enterocele, six had uterine prolapse, 33 had rectocele. The differential diagnoses for anterior wall vaginal prolapse (AWVP) include cystocele, enterocele, urethral diverticulum, and Gartner duct cyst.

Stress urinary incontinence was significantly more frequent in women without enterocele. Discussion and conclusions Transvaginal Enterocele Repair. In posthysterectomy apical prolapse an enterocele is often present. Depending on the size of the enterocele and other components of pelvic organ prolapse as well as the type of repair to be done, the surgeon will have to choose between a formal enterocele repair in which the peritoneum is entered or a simple reduction of the enterocele Cystocele or weakness in the front wall of the vagina allowing the bladder to fall into the vagina, Rectocele is a weakness in the back wall of the vagina allowing the rectum to fall into the vagina, Enterocele is a weakness in the top or roof of the vagina allowing small bowel to fall into the vagina

The term constipation often is confused with the need to strain or assist in evacuation, which is really outlet obstruction, or the inability to get stool out. Normal bowel habits are affected by diet. A 2002 study indicated cystocele repair accounts for 8% of all prolapse repair surgeries; in 1997, approximately 18,500 cystocele repairs were performed. Cystocele repair was combined with rectal prolapse repair in 10% of prolapse surgeries, with hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) in 6%, and with both procedures in 16%

Anterior vaginal wall prolapse (AWP) is the most common form of female POP, with 81% of prolapse repairs including the anterior vaginal wall. [
A cystocele is diagnosed by pelvic exam. When a cystocele is present, other defects of the pelvic floor are often also found on exam, such as rectocele, uterine prolapse or enterocele. Treatment for cystocele ranges from no treatment for a mild and asymptomatic cystocele to surgery or a pessary for a more advanced cystocele Rectocele is a variety of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) that involves the herniation of the rectum through the rectovaginal septum into the posterior vaginal lumen.

He believed that the surgeon should be able to recognize and repair all existing pelvic floor support defects at the time of surgery Summary. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP or female genital prolapse) is the protrusion of bladder, rectum, intestines, uterus, cervix, or vaginal apex into the vaginal vault due to decreased pelvic floor support. It is commonly seen in women of advanced age. Other risk factors include multiparity (particularly vaginal births), prior pelvic surgery, connective tissue disorders, and increased intra.
This condition is known as anterior wall prolapse, cystocele or dropped bladder. During the surgery, the bladder is pushed back into its normal position and the support tissue between the front of the vagina and the bladder is tightened and reinforced. The procedure is also called an anterior vaginal wall repair or anterior colporrhaphy Cystocele/Rectocele Definition. Connective tissue separates the pelvic organs. The tissue, called fascia, is attached to nearby muscles. The fascia and muscles support the bladder, vagina, and rectum. Defects in the fascia can cause cystoceles and rectoceles.

Cystocele, or bladder prolapse, is a condition in which the bladder sags down into the vagina due to the weakening of the supporting structure between the bladder and the vagina. The treatment of cystocele may vary depending on various factors such as the severity of the disease and the presence of symptoms or any underlying medical conditions At the follow-up, rectocele and cystocele occurred with significantly higher frequencies among the women with recurrent urinary incontinence than among the women who were continent after the Burch colposuspension (80% and 46% vs. 42% and 10%; p<0.01). Enterocele and uterine/vaginal vault descent occurred in equal frequencies in the two groups Cystocele(fallen bladder). This is when the bladder falls back from its place in the front of the pelvis into the vaginal space so that the bladder, along with the urethra is in the vaginal canal or even outside the body. Rectocele. The vagina and rectum share a wall in common with one another. This wall can fall forward and into the vaginal space Cross shaped mesh is fixed to pubocervicovesical fascia and suspended to antero-lateral abdominal wall
Other pelvic organs can bulge into the vagina, including the bladder (cystocele) and the small intestines (enterocele), producing similar problems. CAUSES. Rectoceles are usually caused by thinning of the rectovaginal septum (the tissue between the rectum and vagina) and weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. There are many things that can lead. Cystocele. Prolapse of the front wall of the vagina and the bladder. Rectocele. Prolapse of the back wall of the vagina and the rectum. Enterocele. Prolapse of the pocket of tissue between the back wall of the uterus and the rectum, usually involving part of the small intestine. Symptoms of Uterine Prolapse. In mild cases, there may be no symptoms An enterocele is a hernia of the peritoneumlined pouch of Douglas, and it may contain intraabdominal contents including small bowel and omentum. Most commonly the hernia is at the vaginal apex or the proximal posterior vaginal wall on the rectum. Rarely, it is seen at the apical anterior vaginal wall under the bladder Also called: Cystocele, Enterocele, Pelvic prolapse, Rectocele. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and other tissues that form a sling or hammock across the pelvis. In women, it holds the uterus, bladder, bowel, and other pelvic organs in place so that they can work properly. The pelvic floor can become weak or be injured Rectocele is the most commonly occurring form of posterior vaginal prolapse. The other type is called enterocele and occurs when the small bowel bulges into the vagina. Typical Rectocele Symptoms. Typical rectocele symptoms include: 1. Difficulty emptying the bowel; Needing to splint the vagina with the fingers to assist bowel movements; Sexual. My GYN just told me last week (during my annual exam) that I have a rectocele and that she can repair it vaginally. It explains some rectal symptoms I've been having for about a year, but I would classify my symptoms as mild and wonder whether the risks of the surgery would be worth it at this time.
