Overview: Colporrhaphy is a surgical procedure to repair a defect in the vaginal wall, including a cystocele (when the bladder protrudes into the vagina) and a rectocele (when the rectum protrudes into the vagina). Your doctor may recommend Colporrhaphy if your pelvic organs become weak, stretched or damaged due to age or childbirth. These sagging organs create a bulge in the vagina, causing pressure, pain, discomfort, and urinary and bowel dysfunction, among other symptoms.Learn More
You will be first given general or local anesthesia to numb the pain during anesthesia. A speculum will be inserted into your vagina to hold it open during the surgery. An incision will be made into the vaginal skin. Next your doctor will identify the defect in the underlying fascia. The vaginal skin will be separated from the fascia and the defect will be folded over and stitched. Any excess vaginal skin will be removed and the incision site will be closed with sutures.
Foley catheter: Foley catheter is a flexible tube which a clinician passes through the urethra and into the bladder to drain urine.
Fascia: A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
