Anterior Prolapse – What is it??

About


The weakening and sagging or falling of the urinary bladder into the vagina.


Women who have vaginally delivered one or more children have a higher risk of developing an anterior prolapse. [1]


- Physical examination by a general physician is required for confirmation.
- Affects only women.
- Lab tests and X-Ray or ultrasound imaging are often required.
- Can be physically painful.


Cystocele is also called Anterior Prolapse. Depending on the time and type of manifestation, it has been segmented into four grades - Grade 1 (mild), Grade 2 (moderate), Grade 3 (severe), and Grade 4 (complete). The common factors for cystocele development are advancing age, childbirth, obesity, heavy weight lifting, constipation, severely strained pelvic muscle during childbirth, menopause, and previous pelvic surgery.


Ages Affected - no particular age group faces higher risk as anterior prolapse depends more on the physical health of the woman.
