Anatomy and Biomechanics of Genital Prolapse
Normal support of the pelvic organs depends on a combination of fascial and muscular support. The specific type of prolapse that exists in an individual corresponds with specific defects in the anatomic structures responsible for normal support. Understanding the nature of this support helps to guide both surgical and nonsurgical management of these conditions. The role that vaginal birth plays in causing pelvic floor damage can be understood by recognizing that neuromuscular damage occurs during parturition.
