The present study was undertaken to evaluate effect of traditional anterior repair versus site specific anterior repair in reduction of urinary symptoms in women with Pelvic organ Prolapse. During the study period of 2 years 140 women belonging to reproductive, peri-menopausal and postmenopausal age groups were included in the study. Employing past literature, the sample size calculated was 140. All women were assessed pre-operatively by the assessment method – Pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system. 70 women belonging to Group A were treated according to vaginal hysterectomy with traditional anterior repair and 70 women belonged to Group B who were treated according to vaginal hysterectomy with site specific anterior repair. Post-operatively, all women were followed up till 7th post-operative day and were assessed for anatomical and functional improvement to determine a better method for repair in reduction of urinary symptoms in women with pelvic organ prolapse. Our study shows functional and anatomical outcomes of traditional anterior repair and site specific anterior repair. 48 of 70 women (68.2%) who were subjected to traditional anterior repair and 52 of 70 women (73.4%) who were subjected to site specific anterior repair had marked functional improvement after surgery. 58 of 70 women (83.2%) belonging to traditional anterior repair group and 67 of 70women (95.3%) belonging to Site specific anterior repair group had considerable anatomical improvement post-operatively. This impresses the role of site specific anterior repair in women with pelvic organ prolapse for attaining better functional and anatomical outcome.
