Abstract:
The pelvic floor supports the pelvic viscera and plays a role in normal urinary, gastrointestinal and reproductive function including parturition. Weakness of the pelvic floor can result in prolapse of the pelvic viscera and symptoms related to the anatomical and physiological changes. To date, prolapse and its treatment have focussed on restoration of the anatomy although symptom resolution may be more important to the patient. The symptoms attributable to prolapse have not been well defined, which makes the evaluation of treatments impossible. Neither have the factors that may influence symptoms and anatomical signs of pelvic organ prolapse been explored.
