Transvaginal uterosacral ligament hysteropexy: a video tutorial
- 627 Downloads
Introduction and hypothesis
Uterine-sparing procedures could be attractive in patients concerned about fertility preservation and corporeal image changes. Transvaginal uterosacral ligaments (USLs) hysteropexy can provide a mesh-free technique for uterine suspension. This video is intended to serve as a tutorial for surgical steps.
A 38-year-old woman with symptomatic stage III POP desired preserving fertility. After proper counseling, the patient was admitted for vaginal hysteropexy through bilateral high USL suspension according to the featured technique.
Prolapse repair was successfully achieved without complications. We had already published a series of 20 cases that confirmed that transvaginal USLs hysteropexy is a promising technique for correcting genital prolapse with uterus preservation.
Transvaginal USLs hysteropexy provides a feasible technique for apical support without the use of prosthetic material. This procedure could be attractive to women who desire a uterine-sparing surgical option.
