Abstract

Aim: To study the intersystem association between pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system and simplified pelvic organ prolapse (S-POP) scoring system. Materials and methods: This hospital-based prospective, randomized controlled trial was conducted in 65 women of reproductive, perimenopausal, and postmenopausal age-group with pelvic organ prolapse having urinary or bowel complaints and admitted to gynecology ward of Lata Mangeshkar Hospital, Nagpur, during the period from October 1, 2016, to October 31, 2018. Women willing to participate in the study were assessed and enrolled in the study after fulfilling inclusion and exclusion criteria. Women were assessed by both the assessment systems—POP-Q system and S-POP scoring system preoperatively for evaluating intersystem association between them. Results: There was FAIR association between POP-Q and S-POP of stage II and stage III for anterior wall prolapse. The association was GOOD of stage II and FAIR of stage III for central compartment and VERY GOOD of stage II and FAIR of stage III for overall prolapse. Conclusion: Though POP-Q system appears complex; it is simple and has a learning curve. With respect to pelvic floor repair and significant anatomical and functional improvement postoperatively, POP-Q system should be the preferred method of assessment of pelvic organ prolapse. Clinical significance: We hope to find a suitable, reproducible, standardized, and user-friendly method for quantification of pelvic organ prolapse to relate the result of the test to the outcome of treatment.
