Association Between Pelvic Floor Muscle Trauma and Pelvic Organ Prolapse 20 Years After Delivery

Volloyhaug I, Morkved S., Salvesen KA. International Urogynecology Journal, Volume 27, Number 1, January 2016, Pages 39-47

 Cora Huit July 13, 2016


Clinical Question

Since it is known that pelvic floor trauma (PFMT) is associated with prolapse (POP) and symptoms of prolapse (sPOP) and POP-Q>2 in patient populations, the aim was to establish prevalence and possible associations between PFMT, sPOP, and POP > 2 in healthy women twenty years after their first delivery.

Lecture: New ISM Perspectives for Treating Women with PGP, UI, POP, and DRA

By Diane Lee

It is well known that the abdominal wall and pelvic floor play key roles in function of the trunk and that pregnancy and delivery can have a significant, and long lasting, impact. Non-optimal strategies for the transference of loads through the trunk can create pain in a multitude of areas as well as affect the urinary continence mechanism and support of the pelvic organs. The Integrated Systems Model will be highlighted in part one of this lecture to demonstrate its use for determining when to treat the thorax, when to treat the pelvis and when to train the various muscles of the deep system (i.e. transversus abdominis and/or pelvic floor) for the restoration of form and function after pregnancy (how to Find the Primary Driver).

Widening of the linea alba and separation of the recti, known as diastasis rectus abominis (DRA), may prevent restoration of both the appearance and the function of the trunk and women with this condition often ask whether surgery will help them. Currently, there are no guidelines for clinicians to know which patients with DRA are appropriate for conservative treatment and which ones will also require surgery. Part two of this lecture will highlight Diane’s research that led to clinical tests that reveal who can be treated conservatively and who will require a surgical intervention.
