Vaginal Vault Prolapse

Vaginal vault prolapse

Vaginal vault prolapse can occur following the surgical removal of the uterus, or hysterectomy.

(The first picture shows where the uterus was before it was removed.) When the top of the vagina loses the support of the uterus, it often sags or drops into the vaginal canal.
