Anterior repair is used to tighten the front (anterior) wall of the vagina. The procedure is also called an anterior vaginal wall repair or anterior colporrhaphy.
What is colporrhaphy? Colporrhaphy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that repairs and strengthens the vaginal wall after a pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
Indications. Anterior repair: treatment for prolapse of bladder (bladder bulges forward into the vagina; cystocele) or urethra. Posterior repair: correction of bowel.
