The study was conducted on 10 animals (5 cattles and 5 buffaloes) presented with swelling in perianal and perivaginal
area, bilateral swelling in three animals was observed and all animals had history of chronic nature, swelling developed gradually either in advanced pregnancy or after parturition, accidental falling on hard objects and hit by another animal.
It has been suggested that estrogen may be responsible for edema of perivaginal
tissues and relaxation of pelvic ligaments as well as relaxation of vulvar and perivulvar musculature which may be combined with an inherited weakness of the perivaginal
tissues (Gouletsou et al., 2009).
Traditional colpocleisis closes the urogenital hiatus without specifically identifying the perivaginal
endopelvic fascial septa, while using some degree of vaginectomy.
Skin condition Genital atrophy Pelvic organ prolapse Pelvic masses Perivaginal
muscle tone Other abnormalities.
Attempts have been made to correct hronic prolapse of genital organ by transvulvar suture (Oehme and Prier 1974, Kumar 2005), Buhner's suture (Kumar et al., 2011, Potter 2008), fixation of perivaginal
tissue (Noordsy, 1994) and also by application of truss (Dharani et al., 2010) Fig.
