Verzakking: behandeling van een gevoel, of echt minder na behandeling?

  • Bary Berghmans
Klinische vraag


Een verzakking, ofwel een prolaps, van de vrouwelijke bekkenorganen is een verzamelnaam voor een aantal klinische condities, zoals een verzakking van de vaginavoorwand (ook wel uretrokèle, cystokèle of cysto-uretrokèle genoemd) en/of de vagina-achterwand (enterokèle of rectokèle), een verzakking van de baarmoeder (van het apicale segment van de cervix/uterus), of, als de baarmoeder ontbreekt, van de vaginatop (cuff of vault prolapse) (Abrams e.a., 2002).
