Most case series describing surgical repair for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) after radical cystectomy (RC) focus on transvaginal repairs. We present our experience of POP after RC repaired by abdominal mesh sacrocolpopexy (ASC) with long-term follow-up.

Pelvic floor abnormalities often affect multiple organs. The incidence of concomitant uterine/vaginal prolapse with rectal prolapse is at least 38%. For these patients, addition of sacrocolpopexy to r...
Women have an estimated 12.6% lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for pelvic organ prolapse in the USA (Wu et al. in Obstet Gynecol 123(6): 1201-6, 2014). Surgical repair of uterovaginal prolapse most...
Pelvic organ prolapse is prevalent among women with rectal prolapse.
To explore patient migration patterns in patients requiring repeat surgery after Pelvic Organ Prolapse repair as there is a limited understanding of care seeking patterns for repeat surgery after Pelv...
Sacrocolpopexy is the gold-standard repair for apical pelvic organ prolapse (POP). However, over half of women with POP who undergo the surgery experience recurrence, particularly those with higher pr...
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the uterus or vaginal walls bulge into or beyond the vaginal introitus. Abdominal sacrocolpopexy is the most durable operation for advanced pelvic organ p...
Urinary incontinence will develop after prolapse repair in approximately one quarter of patients with advanced pelvic organ prolapse who remain continent despite significant loss of anteri...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of R-SCP versus HUSLS for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.
Robotic-assisted Abdominal Sacrocolpopexy is both a feasible and safe method for apical prolapse repair of the vagina.
The aim of the study is to perspectively compare the anatomical and functional outcomes of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) repair after Laparoscopic or Robotic-assisted Colposacropexy.
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
The region in the abdomen extending from the thoracic DIAPHRAGM to the plane of the superior pelvic aperture (pelvic inlet). The abdominal cavity contains the PERITONEUM and abdominal VISCERA, as well as the extraperitoneal space which includes the RETROPERITONEAL SPACE.
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
