FAQ

What is colporrhaphy or anterior posterior vaginal wall surgery?
It is a surgery which involves removal of a part of the vaginal wall; either from the front or the back wall, folding of the ligaments that support the pelvic organs and pushing of the urinary bladder upwards in the pelvis.

Who should get colporrhaphy or anterior posterior vaginal wall surgery?
Women who have developed cystocele and/or urethrocele are recommended to undergo anterior wall surgery whereas posterior wall surgery is required to correct rectocele.

What is a cystocele/ urethrocele/rectocele?
Prolapse of the bladder, urethrocele or rectum through the vaginal wall, i.e. when a part of them protrudes into the vaginal orifice, it is referred to as cystocele, urethrocele & rectocele respectively.

What predisposes to cystocele / urethrocele / rectocele?
Childbirth, old age, long standing cough or heavy lifting, chronic constipation, hysterectomy and genetics are common risk factors for prolapse.
