Abstract

Assessment and management of anterior vaginal wall defects presents a unique surgical challenge. It is often the most common site of initial prolapse in women and the most common site of recurrence. This chapter discusses the anatomy, evaluation, and surgical approach to the treatment of anterior vaginal wall defects. We also review outcomes of various surgical approaches and discuss why the anterior vaginal wall presents such a challenge.
