Vaginal Vault Prolapse

Vaginal Vault Prolapse & Cystocele Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai

An anterior prolapse can happen if you’ve had your uterus taken out (hysterectomy). There are two types of prolapses that can occur in the front side of your vagina, and they’re the most common kinds of pelvic organ prolapse. They are: Bladder. This is also called a “cystocele.” It happens when your bladder drops down into your vagina. A cystocele can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on how far your bladder drops. The vaginal wall bulges due to the weakening of the thin tissue wall separating the rectum to the vagina is referred to as vaginal vault prolapse. When it occurs posteriorly it is referred to as a rectocele. An example of an issue that can bring the prolapse is giving birth. A minor prolapse does not require surgery.
