Introduction: Pelvic organ prolapse is a major health problem affecting 50% of parous women over the age of 50. The lifetime risk for pelvic floor surgery for prolapse is likely to be between 10 and 20% and a large number of patients require repeat surgery for recurrence. Cochrane review showed that mesh use at the time of anterior repair reduce the risk of recurrence. In our first study we prospectively evaluate the impact of mesh insertion during anterior repair on sexual function and quality of life. Mesh insertion may be associated with significant and in some cases serious adverse events. To justify its use, it seems necessary to identify women at high risk of prolapse recurrence. There is evidence indicating that levator ani avulsion injury is closely associated with prolapse recurrence. The aim of our second and main study was to demonstrate in a prospective randomized way that levator avulsion may be used to identify patients at high risk for failed native tissue prolapse surgery. Methods: The first study prospectively evaluated with validated questionnaires the impact of mesh insertion on quality of life and sexual function. The second study is a single-center, prospective, randomized interventional trial of two standard surgical procedures for post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse in...

Obstetric interventions and pelvic floor disorders - Abstract One of the principal objectives of obstetric interventions in the second stage of labor is prevention of pelvic floor trauma and associated pelvic floor disorders. The most commonly used and also most frequently discussed interventions are manual perineal protection and episiotomy. The majority of pelvic floor disorders are of subjective nature. Therefore, tools for objectification and severity quantification of these disorders are the key to reliable comparison and identification of the most effective interventions. The aim of the dissertation was to find the most effective modification of manual perineal protection, to compare two frequently used types of episiotomy regarding all pelvic floor disorders and finally to find a consensus on the most suitable instrument for anal incontinence severity assessment. Our studies concerning manual perineal protection experimentally described the direction and extent of perineal deformation during vaginal delivery. The subsequent studies on biomechanical model demonstrated that the most effective method of manual perineal protection in peak perineal strain reduction is when the fingers are placed on the perineum 6 cm laterally and 2 cm ventrally from the posterior commissure at both sides and are...

Vaginal Birth in Primiparas and Anal Incontinence Objective: An investigation of incidence and degree of anal incontinence after vaginal delivery among primiparas and characterizing of the risk factors Design: Prospective observational study Setting: Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Charles University and Faculty Hospital Pilsen, the Czech Republic Methods: 346 primiparas after consecutive vaginal delivery between 2000 and 2001 were included. All delivered in lithotomy position. Questionnaires were sent few days after delivery and then 2 and 6-9 months later. Analysis of returned questionnaires. 28 obstetric parameteres assessed. Results: 46.5% women responded. 23 women registered leakage of flatus before delivery. Two months postpartum 1 (0.6%) patient reported fecal incontinence and 22 (14.3%) flatus incontinence de novo or impaired already present incontinence. 6-9 months after delivery the same patient (0.6%) reported fecal incontinence and 16 women (10.4%) incontinence of flatus. 10 of them felt impaired quality of life. Anal incontinence gradually improved during the time (in 76%). Risk factors of developing (worsening) of anal incontinence were antenatal anal incontinence (in two months period) and women weight (or BMI) meassured at 6-9 months after birth. None of nine patients after forceps...
