|Aims and Objectives|
Pelvic Organ Prolapse is a common condition. Etiology is not well defined. Diagnosis is poorly standardised, underlying conditions poorly understood. Recurrence after surgery is common, and the place of modern mesh techniques remains to be defined. Imaging can contribute substantially to our understanding and treatment of this condition.
In lectures and live scans with hands-on opportunity, this workshop will introduce attendees to the imaging diagnosis of anterior, central and posterior compartment prolapse, with reference to clinical diagnosis and its' enhancement by imaging. We will discuss imaging of mesh implants, and to what degree imaging can help with the management of recurrent prolapse, both after mesh and conventional repair.
