Abstract

Aims: This was performed to examine pelvic organ prolapse using POP-Q technique and correlate pre-existing urinary symptoms with segments of pelvic organ prolapse.

Methods: All patients admitted with pelvic organ prolapse were included. Patients were asked regarding any concomitant urinary symptoms and then all patients were examined by POP-Q technique and correlation of urinary symptoms was done with various segments of pelvic organ prolapse.

Results: Eighty patients were studied in one year duration. Majority of patients had presented with stage 4 prolapse (58.8%). Majority of patients had urinary symptoms among which 87.5% had increased urinary frequency, 88.8% had dysuria, 65% had stress urinary incontinence (SUI), 72.5% had incomplete evacuation. Dysuria and SUI was found to have significant correlation with anterior segment prolapse (p<0.05%).

Conclusions: Site specific measurements by POP-Q system showed anterior segment prolapse to be more and were significantly associated with various urinary symptoms.
