A/P Repair

"A/P Repair" refers to anterior and posterior vaginal wall repair.

Anterior vaginal wall repair is surgery that tightens the anterior (front) wall of the vagina. This procedure is used to repair the sinking (prolapse) or bulging of the vaginal wall that occurs when the bladder (cystocele) or urethra (urethrocele or urethral hypermobility) sink into the vagina.

Posterior vaginal wall repair surgery corrects the bulging of the rectum into the vagina (rectocele).

These procedures may be done while you are under general or spinal anesthesia.
