Perineal hernia extruding into the labium majus after multiple surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse.
Summary of "Perineal hernia extruding into the labium majus after multiple surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse."
A 78-year-old woman presented with a large bulge in the right labium majus. She had a previous history of two anterior and posterior vaginal wall prolapse repairs, a vaginal hysterectomy for uterovaginal prolapse, a sacrospinous ligament fixation for vaginal vault prolapse, and a LeFort partial colpocleisis for recurrent vault prolapse. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an anterior perineal hernia containing small bowel. Surgery was performed to close the pelvic floor defect through a perineal approach, and polypropylene mesh was used as a bolster. The hernial sac contained small bowel with very thin adhesions. Over 6 months of follow-up, there was no recurrence of the hernia or mesh complications. Perineal hernias after gynecological surgeries for benign diseases are rare. The indications for repair and the optimal surgical approach are not well described.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A fibromuscular band that attaches to the UTERUS and then passes along the BROAD LIGAMENT, out through the INGUINAL RING, and into the labium majus.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
A syndrome of multiple defects characterized primarily by umbilical hernia (HERNIA, UMBILICAL); MACROGLOSSIA; and GIGANTISM; and secondarily by visceromegaly; HYPOGLYCEMIA; and ear abnormalities.
A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
