The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used to compare the POPQ measurements before and after the procedure.
9) Preoperative measurements and staging, median Aa (cm) +3 +3 Ba (cm) +4 +5 tVL (cm) +8 +7 POPQ stage IIIBa IIIBa Haemoglobin (g/dl), 9.
Urinary splinting was uncommon when POPQ
point Ba was less than 0, but it ranged from 23%-36% for stage III and IV Ba prolapse.
Six of the nine individual anatomical points evaluated in the POPQ changed significantly between the first and third trimesters.
Overall, most women were POPQ stage I, and none were higher than stage II.
Swift's investigation is the first to evaluate the use of POPQ
guidelines, he said.
