Uterine preservation in patients with uterine prolapse is a common practice in the last decade and the reconstructive pelvic operation can be done either by vaginal, abdominal or laparoscopic approach. In young patients, uterine preservation is a legitimate option and one of the proposed operations is sacro-hystero-pexy. Single Port Laparoscopy (SPL) is a relatively new technique. This is a case of a young patient presented with grade III uterine prolapse and rectocele.


The video presents the surgical technique of sacro-hystero-pexy as was described in 2001 by von Theobald, adapted specifically for the SPL technique.


The Single Port laparoscopy is an advanced laparoscopic technique. This video demonstrate that scaro-hystero-pexy can be done safely and efficacy with Single Port Laparoscopy without prolonging the operation time significantly.
