Abstract

Management of gynecologic issues in women with bladder exstrophy is challenging. Congenital pelvic organ prolapse and prolapse-associated pregnancy and delivery are common. The management of prolapse is complicated by the anatomic changes involving the bony pelvis, connective tissue support, pelvic floor, and the length and axis of the vagina. A case of recurrent pelvic organ prolapse successfully managed with a sacral colpopexy and a review of the literature are presented.
