Background. To evaluate the advantages of posterior colpoceliotomy.
Methods. A retrospective analysis of the results of posterior colpoceliotomy performed between 1995 and 1998 for tubal sterilization, ectopic pregnancy or benign ovarian cyst.
Results. Surgery was possible in all 32 cases. The mean surgical time was 15 minutes. No intra- or postoperative complications were observed. The mean postoperative hospitalization lasted 32 hours. In 14 of 16 cases of ectopic pregnancy salpingectomy has been performed. In 2 cases tubal curettage has been performed with enucleation of contralateral dermoid cyst in 1 case.
Conclusions. Colpoceliotomy is, in selected cases, a valid alternative to laparoscopy.
