Abstract: Introduction: Present study was undertaken to study the incidence of Uterovaginal prolapse. Also studied its relation with age, parity, etiological and predisposing factors. Also the factors like clinical-presentation (i.e. patient’s presenting symptoms) duration of disease, degree and components of Uterovaginal prolapse, associated pelvic findings and different modes of treatment studied and post operative follow-up also studied.
Methods: This prospective study “clinical study of Uterovaginal prolapse “was undertaken between February 2017 to May 2018 at D.Y Patil Medical College Pimpri Pune. Total 200 cases of UV prolapse who attended the OPD or admitted in wards of D.Y Patil Medical College were studied. Patients complaining of something coming out of vagina were included in this study.
Results: Maximum incidence of prolapse was between the age of 31 to 50 years which is 53%, in para three and above i.e. 76.50%, cases belonging to lower social economic condition i.e. 85%, and in previous home deliveries i.e.57.14%.
Conclusion: Prolapse can affect any age group but most commonly seen in women with high parity. Majority of cases have obstetric causes like delivery conducted by untrained person at home. Vaginal hysterectomy with pelvic floor repair is the choice of operation performed. Other commonly performed operations are fothergill’s repair, Shirodkar’s sling operation. Pessary has a limited application in management of prolapse.
