Genital prolapse

Genital prolapse is the descent of the pelvic organs secondary to the rupture or weakness of the pelvic floor support. It is divided into three types:

  • Anterior: prolapse of the urethra or bladder, or both, into the vagina (cystocele, uretrocele).
  • Middle: descent of the uterus or the vaginal vault (uterine prolapse, enterocele).
  • Posterior: prolapse of the rectum into the vagina (rectocele).
