GUTIERREZ MACHADO, Mario et al. Intravaginal evisceration post-histerectomy. A uncommon case presentation. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3062.
Vaginal evisceration is not common. Normally, it presents in postmenopausal women. It is related to previous vaginal surgery, especially hysterectomy and to weakness of pelvic floor. It requires emergence surgical intervention to resection of the involved bowel portion if it was necessary, and to repair defect of vaginal fundus. This is a case of vaginal evisceration post-hysterectomy in a woman aged 39, repaired by vaginal route with a favorable evolution.
