Transurethral bladder eversion concurrent with uterovaginal prolapse.
BACKGROUND: Transurethral bladder eversion is rare. A case of transurethral bladder eversion with concurrent uterovaginal prolapse is presented.
CASE: The patient was postmenopausal, had a long history of uterovaginal prolapse, and developed bladder eversion. Examination under anesthesia revealed full-thickness transurethral bladder eversion and complete uterine procidentia. Temporary reduction of the prolapse was done initially because of her unstable medical condition. After medical stabilization, definitive surgical reconstruction was completed by a vaginal approach.
CONCLUSION: Full-thickness, transurethral bladder eversion can be surgically treated by a vaginal approach.
