Objective: :To evaluate the effect of pelvic floor magnetic stimulation combined with electrical stimulation on postpartum pelvic organ prolapse.
Materials and Methods: :A retrospective study was performed by reviewing the clinical records of postpartum patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). POP stage, pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength, and intrapelvic surface electromyography were compared before and after 20 treatment sessions of combined pelvic floor magnetic and electrical stimulation.
Results: :A total of 90 patientsí data files were analyzed. One-hundred percent (90 of 90) of the patients improved by decreasing one stage of POP; 93.3% (84 of 90) of patients improved their PFM; the amplitudes for phasic, tonic and endurance contraction were all significantly increased.
Conclusions: :The cocktail scheme combining magnetic stimulation, electrical stimulation and biofeedback, not only increases the awareness of PFM, but also improves the PFM contraction and POP stage.
