    Abstract : Abstract Long-term consequences of vaginal delivery on the pelvic floor: A comparison with caesarean section in one-parae women Urinary incontinence (UI), symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse (sPOP), and faecal and anal incontinence (FI and AI) are the three major sequelae of childbirth.

    Abstract : The objectives of this thesis were to investigate the annual rates for hysterectomy on benign indications, to evaluate the effects of hysterectomy on bowel function, to identify risk factors for vaginal vault prolapse, to examine the association between hysterectomy and pelvic organ fistula disease, and to determine risks of subsequent pelvic floor surgery after vaginal hysterectomy. We performed a nationwide register based cohort study to investigate the annual rates, types and indications for hysterectomy. READ MORE
