Anterior Repair

An anterior repair is recommended for bladder prolapse (cystocele) if it is serious enough or causing problems with urination (inability to empty the bladder, or bladder feeling full all the time). Not all bladder prolapses and cystocele require surgery and kegel exercises together with lifestyle changes can help in the management of your prolapse, and more importantly - prevent further pelvic organ prolapse.

Anterior Repair Procedure For Bladder Prolapse

An incision is made through the lining of the front (anterior) wall of the vagina. The supports/ligaments to the bladder are shortened with stitches and the bulging part of the vagina cut away. This repairs the weakness and returns the bladder into position.

The vaginal wound is then stitched up. Kegel exercise is recommended before and after this pelvic floor surgery and it is essential to prevent further prolapse. Women should also be aware that if they suffer with a cystocele (prolapsed bladder) they are also more prone to developing a rectocele (rectal or bowel prolapse) so kegel exercising is vital together with pelvic floor friendly exercises.
