Uterine prolapse following fundal pressure in the first stage of labour: A case report
Tukur J,Omale A,Abdullahi H,Datti Z
Annals of African Medicine , 2007,
Abstract: The use of fundal pressure to assist a woman in labor is a controversial procedure. Its benefits are yet to be scientifically confirmed and it is associated with complications such as perineal lacerations, uterine rupture and uterine inversion. A case is reported of a 28year old Gravida 5 Para 4 + 0 (3 Alive) who presented to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, (AKTH) Kano, Nigeria with uterine prolapse following fundal pressure done in the first stage of labor in a peripheral hospital. She was delivered by Cesarean section and the prolapse successfully reduced under general anesthesia. Health workers need education on the risks associated with fundal pressure. Alternative methods of aiding women in labor should be promoted.
Uterine prolapse in a 19 year old pregnant woman: a case report

Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association , 2009,
Abstract: It is well-known that multiparity and advanced age are major risk factors for pelvic organ prolapse which can rarely complicate pregnancy. We present the youngest case of uterine prolapse during pregnancy. She admitted with ruptured membranes at the 36th week of gestation and irreducible prolapse. As the edematous and thick, trapped and ulcerated cervix was not reducible, labor was obstructed due to cervical dystocia and a cesarean delivery was decided. A live male infant weighing 3100 gram was delivered. The prolapsed uterus recovered spontaneously following the cesarean operation. Uterine prolapse during pregnancy should be managed conservatively. It seems to be essential to perform elective cesarean section because of the risk of possible obstructed labor . We observed a rapid recovery of the anatomy, probably due to the young age.
POPQ system and dynamic MRI in assessment of female genital prolapse  [PDF]

Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2013.32045

Aim: To assess the role of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POPQ) system in the evaluation of female pelvic organ prolapse. Design: Prospective study. Setting: TantaUniversityHospital. Patients: The study was carried out on 60 patients having clinical manifestations suggesting pelvic floor weakness. Intervention: All the patients were subjected to history taking, physical examination including POPQ, and pelvic MRI (static and dynamic) examination. Outcome measures: Quantitative measurements of genital prolapse. Results: All patients showed loss of the normal position of the perineal plate indicating generalized weakness of the whole pelvic floor muscles. Dynamic MRI exhibited pelvic floor abnormalities in 46 patients who did not show any abnormalities on the static images. Conclusion: Dynamic MRI is a helpful tool in defining the nature and quantitative measurements of pelvic organ prolapse. Also, MRI has and advantage over POPQ system in diagnosing lateral prolapse.

Health related quality of life of women suffering from Uterine Prolapse before and after six months of surgery  [PDF]

Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.65051

One of the goals of health for everybody in 21st century is the improvement of quality of life. Thus, to find the best treatment for medical problems, it is not only enough to evaluate the results of interventions on morbidity and mortality in clinical studies, but also that the outcome of interventions in terms of socio-cultural aspect should be evaluated. Uterine Prolapse strikes at the heart of a woman’s sense of her own women nature and therefore her security along with her marital relationship should be guaranteed after the surgery process. After the removal of uterus women can’t find herself fulfilled though it is sick one as changes appear in women’s life both in understanding of her health as well as socio-cultural position that they gained after being as women. Many of the women who underwent surgery process are still suffering from both physical and psychological impairments. Some of them are experiencing psychological problem as they feel no longer a whole or real woman because of the removal of their reproductive organs, while others still had an orgasm from intercourse not just feeling dead. The changes to their sex life have created problem to them as they still struggle to cope with the loss they feel in their life as husbands always fed up as they argue with him. Such types of suffering and pain happen due to the socio-cultural circumstances in which a woman is brought up. They are seen as productive machine which had never been stopped though they are passing from pain and suffering. Thus, the overall issue of surgery process is to assure the quality of life of women to be them as a good wife and mother as well as good employer outside the home but before all this feeling of a whole womanhood in their life.

Journal of the Turkish-German Gynecological Association , 2010,
Abstract: We present a case of uterine prolapse complicating a second trimester pregnancy which was managed successfully with a vaginal pessary.Case: A 19 year-old primigravid woman referred to the obstetric emergency unit at the 16th week of gestation complaining of uterine prolapse. A silicone ring-shaped middle-size vaginal pessary was placed into the vagina. On each control visit, when the vaginal pessary was removed , the uterine prolapse still persisted until birth. The patient gave birth at 38th week by spontaneous vaginal delivery to a healthy baby. After birth, with uterine contractions, uterine prolapse regressed progressively.Conclusion: The management and treatment of uterine prolapse in pregnancy should be individualized depending on the patient’s preference. A vaginal pessary may be helpful to avoid complications of this condition and should be considered during patient counseling.

Rare case of huge rectal and uterovaginal prolapse
Manisha M. Laddad,Nitin S. Kshirsagar,Nitin Nagre
International Journal of Reproduction, Contraception, Obstetrics and Gynecology , 2013, DOI: 10.5455/2320-1770.ijrcog20130629
Abstract: A case of combined genital prolapse and rectal prolapse in a 60-year-old multipara is reported. The treatment of mixed prolapse remains surgical and should be treated the genital prolapse by vaginal hysterectomy with pelvic floor repair and the rectal prolapse by means of the Delorme operation. The mortality and morbidity rates are zero if this operation is used and the relapse rate is only 8 to 11% for the rectal prolapse. It would appear that the two approaches are rarely associated by the authors and would seem to be interesting to reconsider this question by indicating mixed treatment of the two prolapses whenever possible.

Acta Cirurgica Brasileira , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-86502001000300010
Abstract: the authors describe a case of an 84 years old high-risk patient, in whom general or spinal anesthesia was contraindicated and who showed a total uterine prolapse. the patient was widow and did not have sexual activity, and underwent a colpocleisis (le fort operation). the procedure was brief and could be performed using a local anesthetic. the authors conclude that colpocleisis is a surgery performed by the way of exception, but has a place in the armamentarium of the gynecologist treating isolated cases of genital total prolapse.
