Genital prolapse, or pelvic organ prolapse, occurs when the structures of the pelvis protrude into the outside vaginal canal. Genital Prolapse and Urinary Incontinence is the first book of its kind dedicated specifically to genital prolapse and is filled with every different type of prolapse, including the bladder, uterus, rectum, and the mucosal fold containing the intestine. Covering all aspects of this defect while emphasizing the managed care of genital prolapse, this text also explores both surgical and non-surgical treatments, which include methods for the diagnosis and treatment of all abnormalities.
