What is an anterior repair?

An anterior repair is the repair of a cystocele; in other words when the bladder herniated into the vagina through the anterior or front wall. A posterior repair is the repair of a rectocele, the rectum herniated into the vagina through the posterior, or rear wall. Therefore an “A&P” repair, which you’ll see frequently, is the repair of both cystocele and rectocele.

Hope this helps.

Your doctor is always going to be the most accurate source of information pertaining to your case, but Hystersisters is great place to get that information distilled into layman's terms. That and we've been through it or are going to go through it.

I have my TVH, BSO, plus an A&P tomorrow at 8:30am. I'll have some first hand information/experience real soon! This site has made me feel much more comfortable going into this surgery than I would have thought possible. I'm still nervous, but I feel like I know what to expect.
