  • [ 4 ] A systematic and comprehensive description of pelvic organ prolapse is useful to help document and communicate the severity of the problem, to establish treatment guidelines, and to improve the quality of research to standardizing definitions. (medscape.com)
  • The goal of this study was to use a well-described system of quantifying levator ani defect severity using magnetic resonance imaging to examine the relationship between defect severity and the presence or absence of prolapse. (multibriefs.com)

  • Whereas complete vaginal eversion is obvious, lesser degrees of prolapse and the presence of enterocele are more difficult to discern and require careful evaluation of all anterior, posterior, and apical compartment defects. (medscape.com)

  • bulge
  • Although POP-Q staging adequately addresses the extent of prolapse, assumptions about which organ is behind the visualized bulge should be made with caution and should be made only after a complete evaluation. (medscape.com)

  • visceral
  • The pelvic floor consists of all neurovascular, visceral (organs) and myofascial (muscle and connective tissue) structures that are arranged between the pubic bone to the coccyx bone and laterally between the walls of the ischium. (e-rockford.com)
  • hymen
  • Stage 1 means that the most distal portion of the prolapse descends to a point more than 1 cm above the hymen. (medscape.com)
  • Stage 2 denotes that the maximal extent of the prolapse is within 1 cm of the hymen (outside or inside the vagina). (medscape.com)
  • Stage 3 means that the prolapse extends more than 1 cm beyond the hymen but no more than within 2 cm of the total vaginal length. (medscape.com)
