Robot-Assisted laparoscopy for genital organ prolapse

Persson, Jan LU (2013) In Robotic Urology: Second Edition p.389-393
Abstract

Support of the anterior and posterior vaginal wall is related to the support and position of the vaginal apex. Therefore, support of the vaginal apex, with or without a concomitant procedure to prevent the formation of an enterocele, is the base for prolapse surgery. A number of surgical approaches, vaginal, open or laparoscopic have been described with or without preservation of the uterus. The use of type I mesh for anchoring of the vaginal apex to the sacral promontorium has lowered the complication rate for these kinds of procedures. As women with urogynaecological problems rarely present with one symptom in isolation combined procedures for stress, urinary incontinence or concomitant pelvic floor compartment defects are often...

Support of the anterior and posterior vaginal wall is related to the support and position of the vaginal apex.

The use of type I mesh for anchoring of the vaginal apex to the sacral promontorium has lowered the complication rate for these kinds of procedures. As women with urogynaecological problems rarely present with one symptom in isolation combined procedures for stress, urinary incontinence or concomitant pelvic floor compartment defects are often necessary.
