Abstract
Vaginal prolapse following hysterectomy occurs in 2-48% of women for the failure of the supporting pelvic floor structures. Causes, leading to its occurrence are deliveries, estrogen deficiency, trauma, and surgeries of the pelvic organs. Treatment of vaginal prolapse may be conservative or surgical. Surgical approach may be vaginal, abdominal, laparoscopic or minimally invasive, the latter being the most recent treatment modality. Morbidity related to surgical treatment is frequent: recurrence and silent accompanying problems such as involuntary urine and/or feces leakage, difficult urination and problems in sexuality. For the frequency of vaginal prolapse, resulting inferior quality of life, complex treatment solutions, it is necessary to evaluate and determine the golden standards for prevention of occurrence of the vaginal prolapse. On the basis of the analysis of the results, recommendations for uniform evaluation of possible causes for the occurrence of pelvic organ prolapse following hysterectomy will be prepared, that will at the same time serve as recommendations for reduction in the occurrence; besides, we will prepare recommendations for a uniform optimal surgical approach to treatment.
