abstract

  • We report 2 cases of complete uterine prolapse and bilateral severe hydronephrosis. Although vaginal hysterectomy corrected the obstruction the development of post-obstruction atrophy was associated with hypertension and moderate renal failure. Early diagnosis and correction are required to prevent these sequelae.
