Vaginal vault prolapse

Robert Moore, Christopher Moriarty, Orawee Chinthakanan, John Miklos
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There has been a trend toward robotic sacrocolpopexy in the United States despite longer operating times and higher costs compared with traditional laparoscopy. The current study objective was to evaluate incision to closure times of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy in a urogynecologic practice with extensive experience in the laparoscopic approach for pelvic reconstruction. METHODS: We conducted a single-center retrospective evaluation of consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for vaginal vault prolapse using a permanent polypropylene Y-mesh over a 1-year period...

Sacrocolpopexy remains the "gold standard" procedure for management of posthysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse with improved anatomic outcomes compared to native tissue vaginal repair. Despite absence of clinical data, sacrocolpopexy is increasingly being offered to women as a primary treatment intervention for uterine prolapse. While reoperation rates remain low, recurrent prolapse and vaginal mesh exposure appear to increase over time. The potential morbidity associated with sacrocolpopexy is higher than for native tissue vaginal repair with complications including sacral hemorrhage, discitis, small bowel obstruction, port site herniation, and mesh erosion...

Abdominal sacrocolpopexy is an effective and durable surgical procedure that is conventionally reserved for management of vaginal vault prolapse. With the availability of robotic technology in recent years, sacrocolpopexy has become more commonly performed in a minimally invasive fashion. Peritoneal closure can be a tedious and time-consuming step in robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy. We describe a novel technique utilizing a bidirectional barbed suture to re-approximate the peritoneum in robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy, making the procedure more time-efficient...

Sacrocolpopexy (SC) is considered the criterion-standard treatment for management of vaginal vault prolapse (VVP), and laparoscopic SC (LSC) has become a popular alternative to the abdominal approach. However, there are limited definitive data comparing the 2 procedures. The aim of this meta-analysis is to compare the abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC) with the LSC for the management of VVP. Electronic searches of MEDLINE, EMBASE, PubMed, Cochrane Register of Controlled Trials, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, CINAHL, and Google scholar were performed...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is one of the most important risk factors for the development and progression of the pelvic organ prolapse. However, data regarding whether obesity is a risk factor for recurrence after pelvic organ prolapse surgery are controversial. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to estimate the risk of recurrent prolapse in any vaginal compartment after total vaginal hysterectomy with concurrent uterosacral ligament vaginal vault suspension among normal-weight women compared with either overweight or obese women...

Vaginal evisceration can be defined as a defect in the vaginal wall resulting in prolapse of the intraperitoneal contents. This is a rare complication of hysterectomy, but may result in severe morbidity. We report the case of a postmenopausal woman with transvaginal evisceration of the sigmoid colon 1 year after an abdominal hysterectomy. An exploratory laparotomy was undertaken to reduce the prolapsed sigmoid colon through a combined vaginal-abdominal route. Repair of the defect of the vaginal vault was made using an absorbable running suture...
