    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pelvic organ prolapse; Kaplan-Meier curves; long-term follow-up; quality register; questionnaire; patient reported outcome; cystocele; rectocele; colporrhaphy; non-absorbable mesh; surgical experience; hälso- och sjukvårdsforskning; health services research; Obstetrics and Gynaecology; obstetrik och gynekologi;

    Abstract : Background: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common condition that impacts on quality of life for many women. The mean age of Swedish women operated for POP is 60 years, and with a life expectancy of approximately 84 years this means that the average patient will live 24 years subsequent to the operation.

    Abstract : Background: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a relatively common condition. In Sweden, the overall estimated prevalence of POP in the female population is 31% and the prevalence of symptomatic prolapse is 8–15%. The prevalence of POP increases with age. The lifetime risk of undergoing pelvic floor surgery is estimated to 11%. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pelvic organ prolapse : Aspects of etiology, symptomatology and outcome after surgery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Ann Miedel; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pelvic organ prolapse; risk factors; urinary incontinence; cross sectional study; pelvic reconstructive surgery; natural history of prolapse;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to increase the understanding of symptoms related to pelvic support defects, to study the influence of non-obstetric risk factors for pelvic organ prolapse, to describe short-term natural history in women with symptomatic prolapse and to evaluate outcome after surgery. In a cross-sectional survey investigation of the age-specific prevalence of prolapse in Stockholm 8,000 women, 30-79 years of age, were randomly selected from the Swedish Population Register.

  4. 4. Evaluation and treatment of pelvic organ prolapse : Clinical, radiological and histopathological aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska Institutet at Danderyds Hospital

    Author : Daniel Altman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bowel function; Cystodefecoperitoneography; Histology; Pelvic organ prolapse. Rectal prolapse; Rectocele; Safety; Xenograft;

    Abstract : Objective: To assess the use of cystodefecoperitoneography (CDP) in clinical and radiological diagnosis of cystocele; to study the correlation between clinical and radiological findings at CDP and to evaluate if anatomical topography and structural abnormality corresponds to symptomatic presentation when assessing posterior vaginal wall prolapse; to evaluate if xenograft used at rectocele repair was associated with adverse clinical and histological inflammatory reactions; to prospectively examine if rectocele repair using xenograft is a safe method providing satisfactory clinical and symptomatical outcome; and to investigate the prevalence and risk factors of genital prolapse and urinary incontinence in female patients operated for rectal prolapse. Methods: The following methods were used: The Pelvic organ prolapse quantification system (POPQ), CDP, bowel function questionnaires, pelvic floor surveys, histological, histopathological and clinical inflammatory quantification.

  5. 5. Transvaginal mesh for pelvic organ prolapse : clinical and histological aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital

    Author : Caroline Elmér; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The objectives of this thesis were to assess the objective, clinical, and sexual outcomes after transvaginal surgery for pelvic organ prolapse using a trocar guided mesh kit, to ascertain the vaginal in vivo histological inflammatory response to large mesh, and to identify possible risk factors associated with exposures after transvaginal mesh surgery. A prospective multicenter cohort study was performed between June 2006 and March 2007 throughout 26 clinics in the Nordic countries. READ MORE
