  1. 1. Vaginal prolapse – clinical outcomes and patients’ perspectives a study using quantitative and qualitative methods

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University

    Författare :Mojgan Pakbaz; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vaginal prolapse; national register; pelvic organ prolapse surgery; anaesthesia; knowledge about prolapse; experience; qualitative content analysis; questionnaire; MEDICINE Surgery Obstetrics and women s diseases Obstetrics and gynaecology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar Obstetrik och gynekologi; obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Sammanfattning : 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%. LÄS MER

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

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

    Sammanfattning : 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.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska Institutet at Danderyds Hospital

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

    Sammanfattning : 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.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital

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

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Clinical evaluation of transvaginal mesh for pelvic organ prolapse surgery

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Författare :Marion Ek; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The objective of this thesis was to increase the understanding and assess the outcomes in terms of complications, relieve of symptoms and anatomical results of anterior vaginal wall prolapse surgery using either trocar-guided transvaginal mesh or conventional anterior colporraphy, and to identify variables associated with lateral defects. A multicenter randomized controlled trial was performed between December 2007 and December 2008 in the Nordic countries comparing transvaginal mesh surgery for anterior prolapse with the Prolift® mesh kit with traditional anterior colporraphy.
