Many times after a uterus is removed the vaginal cuff or the top of the vagina is not properly secured, or if it was it detaches from it points of attachments and a vaginal cuff prolapse occurs. In simple terms the top of the vagina falls through the vaginal opening.
A woman may feel a bulge through the vagina, or difficulty with bowel movement or urination, difficulty with intercourse and occasional vaginal bleeding from erosion of the vaginal mucosa rubbing on clothing.
Treatment options for this problem are pessary to support the prolapse or surgical. minimally invasive operation, robotic surgery, and vaginal surgical techniques are effective treatment options.
