Event Description
It was reported in a journal article with title: natural orifice vaginal sacrocolpopexy: short-term outcomes. The objective of this study was to assess the short-term outcomes of natural orifice vaginal sacrocolpopexy with a retroperitoneal approach, using the same steps as the classical abdominal approach. Between december 2009 and august 2012, 18 patients with stage iii or iv vaginal vault prolapse and uterine prolapse were enrolled in the study. During the procedure, the presacral fascia was dissected at the level of s1 placing two to three 2-0 prolene sutures (ethicon) horizontal to the sacral portion of the anterior longitudinal ligament. These sutures were then passed through along soft macroporous prolene mesh (ethicon) and were tied with a knot-pusher. The vagina was everted and four prolene sutures were placed in the anterior vaginal wall, passed through a 5 cm wide and 6 cm long mesh and tied. Six sutures were placed in the posterior vaginal wall. The everted vagina was invaginated. Afterwards, sutures were placed in the posterior vaginal wall and passed through the graft of the sacrum superiorly and obliquely. Both anterior and posterior grafts were attached with 2-0 prolene. The sutures from the posterior vaginal wall to the sacrum mesh were tied to restore the vaginal apex to its normal position. Reported complications included mean estimated blood loss of 250 ml during surgery (range 200 ¿ 1000 ml) with mean hemoglobin reduction of 1. 5 g (range 1. 0 ¿ 3. 8 g) (n
=
?) in which 2 patients required blood transfusion. In conclusion, restoration of the vaginal apex to its normal longitudinal position was acceptable for the vaginal approach. Reproduction of the classical abdominal steps is possible with vaginal-retroperitoneal-approach.
