Christina Dancz, MD
Menopause. 27(8):941-951, August 2020
In this video abstract, Dr. Christina Dancz from the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) comments on the role of sex steroid hormones in pelvic organ prolapse. More specifically, she introduces the viewer to the effects of estrogen and progestin on ligament strength, tissue remodeling, the extracellular matrix, and clinical presentation. Taken altogether, these findings suggest that there may be a role for the exogenous administration of hormones in the prevention of pelvic organ prolapse. This topic is more fully explored in our published review in Menopause.
