Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: Discuss the anatomy and physiology of uterine prolapse, and compare the surgical interventions available along with its clinical pathway. Summary: Uterine or vaginal prolapse occurs when the connective tissue or muscles of the body cavity becomes weak, thus disabling it to hold the pelvis in its normal orientation. It is a very common condition that occurs with age or post-hysterectomy. Every year 120,000 to 200,000 women undergo surgery to treat this condition where the vagina is linked to the sacrum using a mesh. This can be done through the traditional 15 30 cms incision or the laparoscopic method of four small incisions assisted by the robot. Chambersburg Hospital has introduced the robot assisted option to a population in the community and is getting good reviews due to a shorter recovery period and quicker return to normal activities. Implications to Perioperative Nursing: Technology had rekindled or sparked interest among the seasoned and novice nurses and surgical technologists in our department. The robotic assisted procedure may be longer and more expensive than the abdominal open approach, but patients come out with less pain and complication resulting in reduced hospital stays and faster recovery times. This procedure keeps us abreast with the possible gold standard for treating uterine prolapse.
