What is Pelvic Reconstruction?
Pelvic reconstruction is used to correct pelvic organ prolapse . Pelvic organ prolapse refers to the weakening of the pelvic floor. When the pelvic floor is weakened, the organs associated with a woman's pelvic region start to fall (prolapse) and push against the body.
These organs include:
When these organs prolapse, it can lead to a number of debilitating symptoms. Including:
Severe pelvic organ prolapse can even cause the pelvic organs to push through the vagina. This is known as vaginal vault prolapse. Pelvic reconstruction surgery, a branch of urogynecology surgery, is designed to fight back against pelvic organ prolapse by restoring the pelvic floor.
How Does Pelvic Reconstruction Work?
Pelvic organ prolapse is most associated with child birth, although women can deal with it for a variety of other reasons. Regardless of the source, pelvic reconstruction is a popular method to strengthen the pelvic floor.
During a pelvic reconstruction surgery:
- Special graft material is drawn from the patient's own body or a special bank. In certain cases, an artificial mesh graft may be used.
- If necessary, the prolapsed pelvic organs are adjusted to their proper place.
- The material is grafted on to the pelvic floor, then tightened to increase the strength.
- After the surgery, a short hospital stay may be recommended.
The actual procedure will vary depending on the individual needs of the patient and the preferences of the surgeon. In some cases laparoscopic pelvic reconstruction surgery or robotic pelvic reconstructive surgery may be available. These options are considered less invasive
After the procedure is over, a recovery period will be necessary. The exact amount of time will vary depending on which method was used. This can mean reducing heavy lifting, avoiding sex and getting plenty of rest.
