BACKGROUND: Pelvic Organ Prolapse etiology is a combination of anatomical, physiological, genetic, lifestyle, and reproductive factors determine pelvic floor dysfunction. POP is very common across all ages women worldwide and has become an increasing socioeconomic problem with public health consequences, with symptoms that could lead to a significant decrease in quality of life.
METHODS: This study retrospectively analyzes a small case series of our initial experience of laparoscopic vaginal suspension with mesh focusing on the technical aspects of the technique. Although sacrocolpopexy and sacrohysteropexy are the most performed surgical techniques, they are associated with serious complications. Laparoscopic vaginal suspension appears reproducible and safe to learn.
RESULTS: Between November 2017 and January 2020, fifteen patients underwent laparoscopic vaginal suspension for pelvic organ prolapse repair. Despite the small number, for a minimally invasive skilled surgeon, we notice a significative reduction of the learning curve to become proficient in this procedure.
CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis and management of pelvic organ prolapse are further complicated by what is considered “successful” treatment. Laparoscopic vaginal suspension is a feasible surgical procedure for one-stage treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.
