The protrusion of an organ or part of an organ into a natural or artificial orifice.
Downward displacement of the UTERUS. It is classified in various degrees: in the first degree the UTERINE CERVIX is within the vaginal orifice; in the second degree the cervix is outside the orifice; in the third degree the entire uterus is outside the orifice.
Protrusion of the rectal mucous membrane through the anus. There are various degrees: incomplete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with displacement of the anal sphincter muscle; complete with no displacement of the anal sphincter muscle but with herniation of the bowel; and internal complete with rectosigmoid or upper rectum intussusception into the lower rectum.
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.

Abnormal protrusion of one or more of the leaflets of TRICUSPID VALVE into the RIGHT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into right atrium leading to TRICUSPID VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS. Its most common cause is not primary valve abnormality but rather the dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the tricuspid annulus.

Blood gases and sex hormones in women with and without genital descensus. (1/78)

BACKGROUND: Abnormalities in connective tissue and spirometric disorders have previously been found in women with genital descensus. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association of descensus and respiratory function. METHODS: The blood gases and sex hormones were measured in 130 women scheduled for surgical correction of descensus and 60 matched women without descensus. All subjects were nonsmokers and without past or present cardiorespiratory disease. RESULTS: Women with descensus had a lower pH (7.39+/-0.04 vs. 7.41+/-0.04, p = 0.01), lower arterial tensions of oxygen (12.7+/-12. vs. 14.1+/-0.9 kPa, p = 0.003) and carbon dioxide (5.1+/-0.4 vs. 5.3+/-0.3 kPa) but a higher hemoglobin concentration (141+/-11 vs. 132+/-9 g/l) and a higher serum progesterone in the follicular phase of the cycle (3.1+/-4 vs. 1.5+/-1 ng/ml, p = 0.03). In 39 (30%) women with descensus, the arterial carbon dioxide tension was below 4.9 kPa. All subjects ventilated more in the luteal compared to the follicular phase of the cycle. In women with descensus, the hemoglobin concentration increased with decreasing arterial oxygen tension (p = 10(-4)) and with decreasing pH (p<10(-3)). CONCLUSION: Women with descensus frequently hyperventilate and, compared with women without descensus, have a lower arterial oxygen tension, increased hemoglobin concentration and slightly lower pH.  (+info)

Current management of mitral valve prolapse. (2/78)

Mitral valve prolapse is a pathologic anatomic and physiologic abnormality of the mitral valve apparatus affecting mitral leaflet motion. "Mitral valve prolapse syndrome" is a term often used to describe a constellation of mitral valve prolapse and associated symptoms or other physical abnormalities such as autonomic dysfunction, palpitations and pectus excavatum. The importance of recognizing that mitral valve prolapse may occur as an isolated disorder or with other coincident findings has led to the use of both terms. Mitral valve prolapse syndrome, which occurs in 3 to 6 percent of Americans, is caused by a systolic billowing of one or both mitral leaflets into the left atrium, with or without mitral regurgitation. It is often discovered during routine cardiac auscultation or when echocardiography is performed for another reason. Most patients with mitral valve prolapse are asymptomatic. Those who have symptoms commonly report chest discomfort, anxiety, fatigue and dyspnea, but whether these are actually due to mitral valve prolapse is not certain. The principal physical finding is a midsystolic click, which frequently is followed by a late systolic murmur. Although echocardiography is the most useful mode for identifying mitral valve prolapse, it is not recommended as a screening tool for mitral valve prolapse in patients who have no systolic click or murmur on careful auscultation. Mitral valve prolapse has a benign prognosis and a complication rate of 2 percent per year. The progression of mitral regurgitation may cause dilation of the left-sided heart chambers. Infective endocarditis is a potential complication. Patients with mitral valve prolapse syndrome who have murmurs and/or thickened redundant leaflets seen on echocardiography should receive antibiotic prophylaxis against endocarditis.  (+info)

Immune system dysfunction and autoimmune disease in mice lacking Emk (Par-1) protein kinase. (3/78)

Emk is a serine/threonine protein kinase implicated in regulating polarity, cell cycle progression, and microtubule dynamics. To delineate the role of Emk in development and adult tissues, mice lacking Emk were generated by targeted gene disruption. Emk(-/-) mice displayed growth retardation and immune cell dysfunction. Although B- and T-cell development were normal, CD4(+)T cells lacking Emk exhibited a marked upregulation of the memory marker CD44/pgp-1 and produced more gamma interferon and interleukin-4 on stimulation through the T-cell receptor in vitro. In addition, B-cell responses to T-cell-dependent and -independent antigen challenge were altered in vivo. As Emk(-/-) animals aged, they developed splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, and lymphocytic infiltrates in the lungs, parotid glands and kidneys. Taken together, these results demonstrate that the Emk protein kinase is essential for maintaining immune system homeostasis and that loss of Emk may contribute to autoimmune disease in mammals.  (+info)

Florid vascular proliferation of the colon related to intussusception and mucosal prolapse: potential diagnostic confusion with angiosarcoma. (4/78)

With the exception of angiodysplasia, vascular abnormalities of the intestines are unusual. We describe a florid benign vascular proliferation of the colon in five adult patients, three of whom presented with idiopathic intussusception. In all cases, the proliferation was sufficiently exuberant to raise the possibility of angiosarcoma as a diagnostic consideration. The group included 2 males and 3 females with a median age of 43 years. Two patients were HIV positive. Four patients presented with a colonic mass; other symptoms at presentation included abdominal pain, diarrhea, bleeding, and bowel obstruction. In all cases, a florid lobular proliferation of small vascular channels lined by plump endothelial cells extended from the submucosa through the entire thickness of the bowel wall. The endothelial cells showed minimal nuclear atypia, and mitotic figures were infrequent. The overlying mucosa showed ulceration with ischemic-type changes, and had features of mucosal prolapse. A possible underlying arteriovenous malformation was identified in two cases. All patients were alive and well at last follow-up (interval, 6 months to 5 years). The presence of intussusception or mucosal prolapse in all of the cases suggests repeated mechanical forces applied to the bowel wall as a possible etiologic factor. The role of HIV infection in the pathogenesis of these lesions remains to be determined.  (+info)

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the pulmonary vein with prolapse through the mitral valve orifice. (5/78)

We present the case of a 33 year old white woman with malignant fibrous histiocytoma arising from the pulmonary vein and prolapsing through the mitral valve, causing acute heart failure. The patient underwent emergency cardiothoracic surgery with resection of the tumour while on cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient's heart failure improved immediately following the resection, demonstrating the benefit of palliative surgery. Adjuvant chemotherapy was recommended and the patient did well for 18 months of follow-up.  (+info)

Antral hyperplastic polyp causing intermittent gastric outlet obstruction: case report. (6/78)

BACKGROUND: Hyperplastic polyps are the most common polypoid lesions of the stomach. Rarely, they cause gastric outlet obstruction by prolapsing through the pyloric channel, when they arise in the prepyloric antrum. CASE PRESENTATION: A 62-year-old woman presented with intermittent nausea and vomiting of 4 months duration. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a 30 mm prepyloric sessile polyp causing intermittent gastric outlet obstruction. Following submucosal injection of diluted adrenaline solution, the polyp was removed with a snare. Multiple biopsies were taken from the greater curvature of the antrum and the corpus. Rapid urease test for Helicobacter pylori yielded a negative result. Histopathologic examination showed a hyperplastic polyp without any evidence of malignancy. Biopsies of the antrum and the corpus revealed gastritis with neither atrophic changes nor Helicobacter pylori infection. Follow-up endoscopy after a 12-week course of proton pomp inhibitor therapy showed a complete healing without any remnant tissue at the polypectomy site. The patient has been symptom-free during 8 months of follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Symptomatic gastric polyps should be removed preferentially when they are detected at the initial diagnostic endoscopy. Polypectomy not only provides tissue to determine the exact histopathologic type of the polyp, but also achieves radical treatment.  (+info)

Innervation of the levator ani and coccygeus muscles of the female rat. (7/78)

In humans, the pelvic floor skeletal muscles support the viscera. Damage to innervation of these muscles during parturition may contribute to pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, animal models that are suitable for studying parturition-induced pelvic floor neuropathy and its treatment are rare. The present study describes the intrapelvic skeletal muscles (i.e., the iliocaudalis, pubocaudalis, and coccygeus) and their innervation in the rat to assess its usefulness as a model for studies of pelvic floor nerve damage and repair. Dissection of rat intrapelvic skeletal muscles demonstrated a general similarity with human pelvic floor muscles. Innervation of the iliocaudalis and pubocaudalis muscles (which together constitute the levator ani muscles) was provided by a nerve (the "levator ani nerve") that entered the pelvic cavity alongside the pelvic nerve, and then branched and penetrated the ventromedial (i.e., intrapelvic) surface of these muscles. Innervation of the rat coccygeus muscle (the "coccygeal nerve") was derived from two adjacent branches of the L6-S1 trunk that penetrated the muscle on its rostral edge. Acetylcholinesterase staining revealed a single motor endplate zone in each muscle, closely adjacent to the point of nerve penetration. Transection of the levator ani or coccygeal nerves (with a 2-week survival time) reduced muscle mass and myocyte diameter in the iliocaudalis and pubocaudalis or coccygeus muscles, respectively. The pudendal nerve did not innervate the intrapelvic skeletal muscles. We conclude that the intrapelvic skeletal muscles in the rat are similar to those described in our previous studies of humans and that they have a distinct innervation with no contribution from the pudendal nerve.  (+info)

Prolapsed intraocular aspergilloma masquerading as malignant melanoma. (8/78)

We describe an aspergilloma that masqueraded as an intraocular malignant melanoma in an elderly male patient.  (+info)

The umbilical cord connects the fetus to the placenta, an organ that provides nutrition and oxygen to the fetus. Umbilical cord prolapse occurs when the umbilical cord passes through the birth canal and into the vagina in front of the babys head. It occurs after the membranes have ruptured. As the baby passes through the birth canal during labor, it puts pressure on the prolapsed umbilical cord. This compression of the umbilical cord decreases or can completely cut off blood flow and oxygen to the baby. Umbilical cord prolapse is a dangerous condition that can cause stillbirth unless the baby is delivered quickly, usually by cesarean section (C-section). Most babies delivered quickly through cesarean section do not suffer from complications caused by this condition.

Plaque prolapse has been reported as an intraluminal tissue (atheroma or thrombus) protruding through the stent struts (1,16). Plaque prolapse within BMS has been found frequently during IVUS-guided stenting. A single study evaluated the overall outcomes of patients with PP after BMS (2). However, detailed assessment of the vessel wall reaction at the site of PP and the relative contribution of PP on neointimal formation remained unknown. The present study focused on diabetic patients who are known to have large atherothrombotic burden and may be more prone to develop PP after stenting. These patients have marked proliferative response after stenting (17), which may amplify the impact of PP. Our data suggest that PP is frequent in this patient population treated with new generation tubular stents (DES and BMS), but the incidence of PP was not higher than that previously reported. Whether the difference in stent design may account for these findings needs to be further evaluated (2). In ...

Yes, if you are going to have surgery to correct the prolapse, bladder testing (called urodynamics) must be done first. Thats because the prolapsed portion of your vagina may be pushing on your urethra and preventing urine leakage. If that is the case, having the prolapse corrected can give you a new problem - urinary incontinence. The only way to tell whether a continence procedure is needed at the time of prolapse surgery is to perform urodynamics while holding the prolapse up in its normal position. What will happen if I just ignore this problem? Will it get worse? Yes. It may not happen quickly, but if left untreated, pelvic organ prolapse almost always gets worse. The one exception to that rule can occur shortly after having a baby. New prolapse (noticed by a patient or doctor in the early postpartum period) will often get better within the first year after the delivery. However, treatment of prolapse should be based on your symptoms. In rare cases, severe prolapse can cause urin. ...
Cytologic Diagnosis: Numerous benign glandular cells present consistent with vesico-vaginal fistula. The glandular cells are arising from cystitis glandularis.. Cytologic Features: The pap test shows numerous columnar cells, with basally located bland nuclei (Figures 1-5). The nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio is low. There is no nuclear hyperchromasia. Inconspicuous nucleoli are observed. The cytoplasm is delicate, fluffy and rare vacuoles are observed, indicating glandular origin. There are no cilia or terminal bars present in any of the columnar cells. Metaplastic and atrophic squamous cells are observed in the otherwise clean background. Discussion: The presence of benign glandular cells on a Pap smear from women after undergoing a total hysterectomy can range from 1% to 13%. The most common and well known reasons for this are: a wrong history (supra-cervical hysterectomy or no hysterectomy), vaginal adenosis, metaplasia, endometriosis, fallopian tube prolapse, primary or metastatic ...

You are correct. The current wisdom is that most cases of cerebral palsy have origins other than intrapartum events, although it is certainly also possible that the normal stress of labor or the excessive stress of induced or augmented labor could overwhelm a compromised babys ability to compensate. Research obstetricians have been trying to come up with a set of symptoms indicative of intrapartum hypoxia so as to identify those cases of neurologic injury that can be attributed to labor events. Leaving aside acute events such as uterine scar rupture, tetanic contractions, or umbilical cord prolapse, this isnt as easy as you would think. Neonatal seizure, for example, can be precipitated by overheating due to maternal fever, hyponatremia (low blood sodium) from too much IV fluid with insufficient salt, infection, congenital abnormality, etc. Other symptoms such as abnormal fetal heart rate or low blood pH at birth have very low predictive value for long-term outcome. In fact, those symptoms may ...
Women with mild or moderate prolapse may complain of pelvic pressure, low backache, or pain, or actually complain that they feel like something is falling out. These symptoms may worsen at the end of the day, especially in women who have been on their feet all day. Sometimes urinary incontinence (leakage of urine) will accompany the other symptoms if there is loss of support to the bladder neck area. If a rectocele is present, difficulty evacuating the rectum may occur because the rectum is herniating into the vaginal canal. With severe prolapse, a bulge is felt out of the vaginal canal. This bulge can be the uterus and cervix (the cervix is the opening to the uterus), the front wall of the vaginal canal with the bladder behind it, or the back wall of the vaginal canal with the rectum behind it. Sometimes the bulge can be felt intermittently because the prolapsed organ actually can go back up into the pelvis. Women with prolapse often notice that if they are on their feet a lot, they notice ...
The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. When the urethra is not well supported by the muscles and tissues around it, it can curve and widen. This is called a urethral prolapse (urethrocele).. It is common for a bladder prolapse (cystocele) to develop along with a urethral prolapse. Both kinds of prolapse can press against the wall of the vagina.. ...

Possible complications that could occur with delay include worsening of symptoms, damage to the anal sphincter or a sore from the tissues rubbing. A more serious concern would be if the blood flow to the rectum became compromised, causing tissue damage or death of the tissue. A bowel obstruction is rare but can happen when a loop of the large intestine is pinched off blocking the intestine ...

To identify the echocardiographic features that can be used to distinguish between hypoplastic left heart syndrome and other causes of right ventricular overload in the sick neonate cross sectional echocardiographic studies of 10 neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome were analysed and compared with those in 15 neonates with other causes of right ventricular overload and 15 normal controls. Left ventricular and right ventricular cavity dimensions and the shape and size of the mitral valve annulus and aortic root were recorded and presented both as absolute values (mm) and corrected for body surface area (mm/m2). Logistic regression was used to produce a classification rule to estimate the probability of a neonate having hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The diameter of the mitral valve annulus was the single most discriminative variable. There was, however, considerable overlap of all the calculated features between neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and those with other causes ...
abstract = The cross-sectional echocardiographic features of mitral valve prolapse were defined in 26 children (ages 2-18 years) using a real-time, multiple-crystal ultrasound scanner. In each patient the physical findings of the mitral valve click-murmur syndrome were present and mitral valve prolapse had been diagnosed previously by conventional single crystal echocardiography. Mitral prolapse occurred in a familial setting in eight patients and was associated with the Marfan syndrome in five. Real-time two-dimensional echocardiography uniformly disclosed maximum mitral arching and the superior-posterior prolapse. These visual observations were confirmed by M-mode recordings derived from single elements within the array of 20 crystals. The method allowed a complete M-mode description of the phasic motion of the entire mitral apparatus and observations of the spectrum of prolapse from discrete late systolic prolapse to {}hammock-like{} holosystolic prolapse. Further, the recording of ...
The scariest rectal prolapse symptom is when the rectum, part of the lower intestine, falls out of the anal opening.. With rectal prolapse, the rectum can fail to come out at all, only appear with bowel movements or sneezing, or chronically protrude from the body at all times.. The symptoms of internal intussception rectal prolapse are a feeling of fullness, bloating, or internal discomfort, as the rectum slides out of its appointed position and falls against other internal organs.. With rectal prolapse, extreme pain and difficulties with bowel movements may also be noticed, especially if the rectum undergoes any torsion (twisting) during its collapse in any form of the rectal prolapse.. Other forms of rectal prolapse cause the protrusion of some or all of the rectum from the anal sphincter.. Other symptoms of rectal prolapse include bleeding or mucus discharge from the damaged tissue, loss of urge to defecate, and fecal incontinence.. Rectal prolapse that is protruding, will most likely look ...
Umbilical cord prolapse may occur, particularly in the complete, footling, or kneeling breech. This is caused by the lowermost parts of the baby not completely filling the space of the dilated cervix. When the waters break amniotic sac, it is possible for the umbilical cord to drop down and become compressed. This complication severely diminishes oxygen flow to the baby and the baby must be delivered immediately (usually by Caesarean section) so that he or she can breathe. If there is a delay in delivery, the brain can be damaged. Among full-term, head down babies, cord prolapse is quite rare, occurring in 0.4 percent. Among frank breech babies the incidence is 0.5 percent, among complete breeches 4-6 percent, and among footling breeches 15-18 percent. Head entrapment is caused the failure of the fetal head to negotiate the maternal pelvis. At full term, the bitrochanteric diameter (the distance between the outer points of the hips) is about the same as the biparietal diameter (the transverse ...
Objective: To determine the significance of the Diagnosis to Delivery Interval (DDI) on perinatal outcome and maternal complications in patients with umbilical cord prolapse. Methods: This was a case series of 44 patients identified with Umbilical cord prolapse during a 10-year period at the Aga Khan University Hospital. Data was retrieved for gestational age, foetal presentation, DDI, incision to delivery time, delivery method, apgar score, birth weight and outcome, and maternal complications. The influence of DDI on perinatal mortality, apgar scores at 5 minutes, neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admission and maternal complications resulting from mode of delivery with cord prolapse was assessed. Results: The hospital based incidence of cord prolapse was 1.4 per 1000 deliveries. The mean DDI was 18 minutes, with 64% of women delivering within this time. Of the 13(29 %) neonates transferred to NICU with | 7 apgar score at 5 minutes, 10/13(76%) delivered within the mean DDI. There were 4 perinatal
Prolapse is a gradual process and results from damage to the supporting tissues at childbirth. As a woman ages especially in her 40s and 50s, there is increased laxity of the collagen due to decreasing female hormones, oestrogen. The prolapse then worsens. 1st degree and 2nd degree prolapse are less severe, but 3rd degree prolapse or procidentia can result in damage to the kidneys due to kinking of the ureters between the kidneys and the bladder, ulcers and cancerous change of the cervix due to the constant rubbing on underwear. My patient did indeed have swollen kidneys before surgery but an xray after the hysterectomy showed that the kidneys had reverted back to normal size. A 3rd degree prolapse and hysterectomy can be prevented if prolapse is detected in the earlier stages and supportive surgery performed. A sensation of heaviness, constipation, difficulty with urination or leakage of urine on excercise or coughing may indicate uterine prolapse ...
Rectal prolapse may be seen as a large reddish cylinder of the rectal mucosa protruding from the anus of the affected pig. It may be small (less than 2-10 cm in length) or large and oedematous. Rectal prolapses are rapidly damaged by the animal as it backs into structures such as pen walls or by other pigs in the pen which bite it. It many cases, the first evidence that rectal prolapse has occurred in a group is the presence of blood on the mouths of a number of animals in the pen.. Lacerated or necrotic (dead and blackened) prolapses may also be found. Pigs may be found dead without the prolapse having been seen or, in some cases, the prolapse drops off before being noted. Where pigs are affected by zearalenone, there is usually vulval enlargement in females and some enlargement of the udder. Where diarrhoea is associated with the cause, diarrhoea is present in other animals in the group.. Attention may be drawn to an affected pig as a result of biting or the prolapse may be seen. Early or ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Psychiatric and medical co-morbidity in mitral valve prolapse. AU - Gonzalez, Efrain A.. AU - Pimental, Claudia. AU - Natale, Ruby A.. AU - Toll, Benjamin A.. AU - Soffer, Ariel. AU - Gralnik, Leonard. PY - 2002/1/1. Y1 - 2002/1/1. N2 - Objective: Significant controversy continues to exist in the empirical literature regarding the diagnosis and treatment of mitral valve prolapse (MVP). In addition, there is also inconsistency in the correlation of anxiety disorders as co-existing with MVP, as well as cause and effect issues in terms of the role of the autonomic nervous system, MVP and panic attacks. Recent studies suggest that the co-morbidity of an anxiety disorder and clinical depression appears to increase the likelihood of MVP in predisposed patients. The objective of this review was to examine, clarify, and further define the medical and psychiatric aspects of MVP. Methods: A literature review was conducted on empirical studies and reviews examining MVP. Results: It was ...

In men folk, though the occurrence is much lower, rectal prolapse presents throughout the age range or might be more common in the second and third decades of life. Mucosal prolapse is most common in fledgling kids. The augmented occurrence in female patients might infer an effect of childbirth on the pelvic floor, but in numerous chains, half of the patients are childless.

If the prolapse causes the cervix (neck of the womb) or the skin that lines the vagina to protrude from the vagina, this can lead to ulceration, bleeding and infection. If the prolapse affects the bladder or the urethra, complications may occur such as urine infections, incontinence (loss of control) of urine and retention of urine (an acute inability to pass urine which may require treatment with a catheter). If the prolapse affects the rectum, there can be difficulty passing stool and incontinence of stool.Treatment options for GU prolapse. ...

Disc Prolapse is yet another of the many names for a herniated disc. Prolapse means to slip out of place, hence the misleading colloquial nomenclature of slipped disc. There are many forms of prolapsed disc. The disc might simply bulge, creating an asymmetrical appearance despite the outer wall remaining intact. The disc might also suffer an annular tear and leak some of the inner core of the structure into the body cavity. This condition is often known as a ruptured disc. The main criteria for a prolapsed disc is that the integrity structure has been compromised, creating a bulge, weakness or actual hole in the outer disc wall. Refernces: ...
Rectal prolapse takes place when part or the whole rectum glides out of place. When you reduce your prolapse, you are pushing your rectum back inside your body. In severe cases of rectal prolapse, a segment of the large intestine descents from its normal position as the tissues that hold it in place stretch. Normally, there is a shrill bend where the rectum begins. With rectal prolapse, this bend and other arcs in the rectum may unbend, making it challenging to keep stool from leaking out. Rectal prolapse can happen for many diverse reasons:. ...
The severity of symptoms associated with a prolapsed rectum varies. Some kittens appear to be in pain while others act as if nothing is wrong. Treatment is detailed in the article Prolapsed Rectum and includes reducing the prolapse manually (pushing the prolapse back inside the kitten) and using a purse-string suture in the anus to hold it in place. The suture remains for 7 to 10 days and then removed. The cat is should be given a low-residue diet and stool softeners for a few weeks to eliminate the possibility of straining in the litter box.. If the prolapse is more severe or is reoccurring, the colon is sewn to the abdominal wall internally so it cannot prolapse. In severe cases, if the tissue that is prolapsing is badly damaged or necrotic, it may need to be amputated.. Manx cats have been noted as being prone to rectal prolapses.. ...

Most kids who learn they have MVP find out about it during a regular checkup. The doctor might be listening to the kids heart and hear a click or a murmur. The doctor then will send the kid to a pediatric cardiologist (say: pee-dee-AT-rik kar-dee-AHL-uh-jist), a doctor who treats heart conditions in kids.. First, the cardiologist will talk to you and your parents for a while and ask some questions about your health. Then he or she will examine you and listen to your heart. The doctor also may order some tests, like an echocardiogram (say: ek-oh-KAR-dee-uh-gram) and an electrocardiogram (say: ee-LEK-troh-kar-dee-uh-gram) (ECG or EKG). The tests can help the doctor find out whats causing the different sound in your heart.. These tests dont hurt. For an ECG, you will lie down and a doctor or nurse will put some small stickers on your chest. These stickers are connected to wires and a machine that records the electricity coming from your heart. The machine will draw squiggly lines representing ...

  • Being overweight or obese increases your risk of prolapsed uterus. (
  • An advanced prolapsed uterus can cause trouble emptying the bladder. (

  • Prolapse (or falling) of any pelvic floor organ (vagina, uterus, bladder or rectum) occurs when the connective tissues or muscles within the body cavity are weak and unable to hold the pelvis in its natural orientation. (
  • Uterine prolapse is mild when the cervix drops into the lower part of the vagina . (
  • In overt umbilical cord prolapse, the cord slips ahead of the presenting part of the fetus and protrudes into the cervical canal or vagina, or beyond. (
  • Uterine prolapse (or Pelvic organ prolapse) occurs when the female pelvic organs fall from their normal position, into or through the vagina. (
  • Vaginal prolapse, also known as vaginal vault prolapse, occurs when the top of the vagina weakens and collapses into the vaginal canal. (
  • In more serious cases of vaginal prolapse, the top of the vagina may bulge outside the vaginal opening. (
  • Symptoms of vaginal prolapse include the feeling of vaginal pressure or fullness - like you're sitting on a small ball - and the sensation that something has fallen out of your vagina. (
  • Vaginal prolapse refers to when the top of the vagina - also called the vaginal vault - sags and falls into the vaginal canal. (
  • Women with vaginal prolapse often report feeling pressure in the vaginal area, described as a throbbing pain in the vagina. (
  • Secondary prolapses, specifically rectocele prolapse (sagging of the connective tissue between the vagina and rectum) or cystocele prolapse (sagging of the connective tissue between the vagina and the bladder). (
  • Obliterative surgery narrows or closes off the vagina to provide support for prolapsed organs. (
  • Colporrhaphy -Used to treat prolapse of the anterior (front) wall of the vagina and prolapse of the posterior (back) wall of the vagina. (
  • In a first-degree uterine prolapse, the cervix drops into the vagina, explains WebMD. (
  • The cervix falls near the opening of the vagina in a second-degree uterine prolapse, and it rests outside of the vagina itself in a third-degree diagnosis. (
  • Symptoms of a uterine prolapse include a feeling of fullness within the pelvis or abdomen, lower back pain, difficulty urinating and defecating, trouble walking, and foreign sensations around the vagina. (
  • Second-degree prolapse occurs when the cervix is at or near the outside of the vagina. (
  • Cystocele (prolapse of the bladder) occurs when the front wall of the vagina weakens and allows the bladder to droop, causing a bulge. (
  • Rectocele (prolapse of the front wall of the rectum into the vagina) causes a bulge in the vagina which may be more noticeable during bowel movements. (
  • Enterocele , also known as vaginal vault prolapse, happens when the intestines press down on the top of the vagina, causing it to fall toward the vaginal opening. (
  • The bladder and bowel can also protrude into the vagina - this is known as pelvic organ prolapse. (
  • In some women, the vagina, bladder or bowel prolapse - this is called pelvic organ prolapse. (
  • The bladder can prolapse or bulge into the front wall of the vagina (this is called a cystocoele) or the bowel can prolapse into the back wall of the vagina (called a rectocoele or enterocoele). (
  • Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when a pelvic organ-such as your bladder-drops (prolapses) from its normal place in your lower belly and pushes against the walls of your vagina. (
  • Pelvic organ prolapse is a common female disorder in which the pelvic organs slip downward from their original position in the abdomen and push onto the walls of the vagina. (
  • In a case like this, the top of the vagina (the vault) can prolapse. (
  • Vaginal prolapse is a condition where the vagina slips out of position. (
  • A vaginal prolapse is a dropping of your vagina from its normal location in the body. (
  • When that happens, the vagina might slip down out of place, causing a prolapse. (
  • Vaginal vault prolapse: The top of the vagina (known as the "vaginal vault") droops down into the vaginal canal. (
  • In addition your vagina walls may weaken causing your vagina to fall forward toward the opening of your vagina (called vaginal vault prolapse). (
  • A uterine prolapse often is treated with a pessary - a ring inserted into the vagina that looks like a diaphragm with no dome. (
  • Women with moderate to severe uterine or vaginal vault prolapse can experience prolapse through their vagina (externally), as shown in the diagrams below. (
  • Sacrocolpopexy is a procedure to surgically correct vaginal vault prolapse where mesh is used to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position. (
  • There are more than 120,000 cases of uterine and vaginal vault prolapse surgically treated each year in the U.S. This procedure can also be performed following a hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse to provide long-term support of the vagina. (
  • Normally, as the womb prolapses, the vagina will also drop. (
  • Unfortunately the biggest risk of vaginal prolapse is after a hysterectomy (where the womb is removed), sometimes years later, because the vagina may have become weakened during surgery. (
  • Anterior vaginal prolapse, also known as a cystocele (SIS-toe-seel) or a prolapsed bladder, is when the bladder drops from its normal position in the pelvis and pushes on the wall of the vagina. (
  • When this happens, your bladder can slip down lower than normal and bulge into your vagina (anterior prolapse). (
  • During the exam, your doctor looks for a tissue bulge into your vagina that indicates pelvic organ prolapse. (
  • A rectocele is a prolapsed rectum that can result when the posterior wall of the vagina prolapses. (
  • Prolapse of the rectum is, in fact, a form of intussusception with the proximal rectum and the sigmoid colon sliding through the anal canal to the outside. (
  • Children with anorectal malformations may have rectal prolapse because they were born with complex malformations, poorly developed pelvic structures, poor or absent sphincters, poor nerves, and, in general, poor mechanisms to keep the rectum suspended. (
  • Rectal prolapse is a condition in which part of the wall or the entire wall of the rectum falls out of place. (
  • Symptoms of a rectal prolapse may be: Leakage of stool Bleeding, anal pain, itching, irritation Tissue that protrudes from the rectum A surgeon may operate through the abdomen to secure part of the large intestine or rectum to the inside of the abdominal cavity (rectopexy). (
  • The rectum or urinary bladder may prolapse as a result of changes in the integrity of connective tissue in the posterior or anterior vaginal walls, respectively, resulting in pelvic floor prolapse. (
  • Rectal prolapse occurs when the rectum becomes stretched out and protrudes from the anus. (
  • Rectal prolapse surgery is a procedure to repair rectal prolapse, which occurs when the last part of the large intestine (the rectum) stretches and protrudes from the anus. (
  • Rectal prolapse is a condition in which the rectum (the last part of the large intestine) loses the normal attachments that keep it fixed inside the body, allowing it to slide out through the anal opening, turning it "inside out. (
  • More common in women than men at a ratio of 6 to 1 according to the Encyclopedia of Surgery, rectal prolapse occurs when the rectum falls, or prolapses, creating a bulge. (
  • Prolapse is caused by a weakening of the sphincter muscle or the ligaments that hold the rectum in place. (
  • In rectal prolapse, the rectum protrudes through the anus during and after defecation. (
  • Rectal prolapse occurs when part or all of the wall of the rectum slides out of place, sometimes sticking out of the anus. (
  • With rectal prolapse, this bend and other curves in the rectum may straighten, making it difficult to keep stool from leaking out ( fecal incontinence ). (
  • For example, if the prolapse doesn't go away on its own, an injection of medicine into the rectum may help. (
  • Changes in diet often are enough to improve or reverse a prolapse of the lining of the rectum (partial prolapse). (
  • And my rectum also lost supports so my rectum will prolapse through my anus if I have to push a bowel movement. (
  • Complications can sometimes result, including ulceration of exposed tissue and prolapse of other pelvic organs such as the bladder or the rectum. (
  • When the rectum stretches and falls through the anus, it is called rectal prolapse. (
  • Rectal prolapse occurs when the tissue lining the rectum collapses into, or extends through, the anal opening. (

  • Rectal prolapse may be partial, involving only the mucosa or complete, involving the entire wall of the rectum. (
  • It is possible to have a rectal (prolapse of the rectum), bladder, vaginal or womb (uterine) prolapse and some of these can occur at the same time. (
  • Some women can remain unaware that they are suffering from a prolapsed rectum, while others will experience severe constipation, as stool becomes 'trapped' in the pouch formed by the bulge, making it difficult to defecate. (
  • This causes the rectum to prolapse , or slip, meaning it slips or falls out of place. (
  • Occasionally, large hemorrhoids (large, swollen veins inside the rectum) may predispose the rectum to prolapse. (
  • Often, a vaginal hysterectomy can be done at the same time as the procedure to correct uterine prolapse. (
  • Vaginal vault prolapse is a common complication following vaginal hysterectomy with negative impact on women's quality of life due to associated urinary, anorectal and sexual dysfunction. (
  • Preexisting pelvic floor defect prior to hysterectomy is the single most important risk factor for vault prolapse. (
  • Various surgical techniques have been advanced at hysterectomy to prevent vault prolapse. (
  • Importantly, greater awareness of the pelvic anatomy and the technique at the time of the original hysterectomy will significantly reduce the incidence of subsequent vault prolapse. (
  • However, vaginal prolapse can occur after hysterectomy (regardless of the reason for hysterectomy). (
  • This is called "vaginal prolapse after hysterectomy. (
  • Prolapse can also happen in women who have had their womb removed ( hysterectomy ). (
  • A procedure like a hysterectomy, or radiation treatment in the pelvic area, could cause a prolapse. (
  • The enterocele and posterior compartment dysfunction is the commonest form of post hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse ( Figure 2 ). (
  • Vault prolapse can occur following hysterectomy done for non-prolapse indications if the surgeon at the time of vaginal vault closure does not perform the vault suspension procedure. (
  • This vital step is the most important point to be remembered by general gynecology practitioners to prevent the occurrence of vault prolapse following hysterectomy. (
  • Some experts believe a hysterectomy to correct prolapse is not necessary in many cases, and at the very least, should not occur unless a woman's symptoms are quite severe. (
  • If hysterectomy and surgical repair of the prolapse is recommended, get a second opinion. (
  • Yes, I do need an operation, and yes, is is a kind of prolapse -- but I don't need a hysterectomy. (
  • With a prolapse they would do a vaginal hysterectomy which is the easiest way to perform one. (
  • How to prevent prolapse at the time of hysterectomy. (
  • In patients with anorectal malformations, certain types of rectal prolapse may even interfere with bowel control. (
  • If the anal sphincter is damaged, surgery may correct the prolapse but not be able to completely correct fecal incontinence (lack of control of bowel movements). (
  • Prolapse is almost never painful, but the change in position of organs may cause urinary or bowel symptoms. (
  • Rectal prolapse surgery is performed in people troubled by chronic symptoms of rectal prolapse, such as leakage of stool, inability to control bowel movements (fecal incontinence) or obstructed bowel movements. (
  • Sugar in the reduction of incarcerated prolapsed bowel. (
  • So with rectal prolapse the lower end of the bowel pops out of the anus. (
  • Rectal prolapse involves an entire segment of the bowel located higher up within the body. (
  • Rectal prolapse can lead to fecal incontinence (not being able to fully control gas or bowel movements). (
  • It can strike at any time, and with rectal prolapse, the problem can occur because the person has lost the urge to have a bowel movement until it is too late. (
