Abstract

Objective: Genetic contribution is thought to be involved in the pathophysiology of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We aimed to study the gene expression profiles of the genes HomeoboxA11 (HOXA11), HomeoboxA13 (HOXA13), Collagen Type I (COL1A), Collagen Type III (COL3A), estrogen receptor genes (ESR1 and ESR2) of round (RL) and uterosacral ligaments (USL) in postmenopausal women with uterine prolapse.
