Background: Vaginal vault prolapse is a common condition following abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy causing negative impact on women’s quality of life. The study compares the efficacy of abdominal and vaginal route surgery in correcting post-hysterectomy vault prolapse by postoperative assessment and at least twelve months follow up.Methods: A prospective comparative study among post-hysterectomy patients attending the GOPD of Midnapore Medical College diagnosed as vaginal vault prolapse at least stage2 between January 2013 to December 2019. The study population included 31 women divided into two groups-group A included 16 women underwent unilateral sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSF) and group B included 15 women underwent abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC).Results: There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of mean age, mean weight, mean parity and BMI, hence both groups are comparable. The mean operating time was 117±19.68 min in ASC group and 83.25±11.28 min in SSF group (p<0.005); significant mean blood loss was reported in ASC group (373±97.79 ml in ASC group versus 193.125±98.97 ml in SSF group, p<0.005), more hospital stays in ASC group (p<0.005) and more post operative complications in ASC group than SSF group. At follow up, the mean vaginal length showed significantly longer for ASC group than that of SSF group (p<0.005).Conclusions: ASC and SSF, both techniques are effective in management of vault prolapse in hands of an expert though recovery time is much quicker in SSF group.

Objective: To evaluate objective and subjective outcomes of patients who underwent sacrocolpopexy using autologous rectus fascia to provide more data regarding non-mesh alternatives in pelvic organ prolapse surgery. Design: Cohort study with retrospective and prospective data. Setting: A single academic medical center. Population: Women who underwent abdominal sacrocolpopexy using autologous rectus fascia between January 2010 and December 2019 Methods: Patients were recruited for a follow-up visit including completing the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory (PFDI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POPQ) exam. Demographic and clinical characteristics were collected. Main Outcome Measures: Composite failure, anatomic failure, symptomatic failure, and retreatment. Results: During the study period, 132 women underwent sacrocolpopexy using autologous rectus fascia. Median follow-up time was 2.2 years. Survival analysis showed that composite failure was 0.8% (CI 0.1-5.9%) at 12 months, 3.5% (CI 1.1-10.7%) at 2 years, 13.2% (CI 7.0-24.3%) at 3 years, and 28.3% (CI 17.0-44.8%) at 5 years. Anatomic failure was 0% at 12 months, 1.4% (CI 0.2-9.2%) at 2 years, 3.1% (CI 0.8-12.0%) at 3 years, and 6.8% (CI 2.0-22.0%) at 5 years. Symptomatic failure rate was 0% at 12 months, 1.3% (CI 0.2-9.0%) at 2 years, 2.9% (CI 0.7-11.3%) at 3 years, and 13.1% (CI 5.3-30.3%) at 5 years. Retreatment rate was 0.8% (CI 0.1-5.9%) at 12 months and 2 years, 9.4% (CI 4.2-20.3%) at 3 years, and 13.0% (CI 6.0-27.2%) at 5 years. Conclusions: Autologous rectus fascia sacrocolpopexy may be considered a safe and effective alternative for patients who desire to avoid synthetic mesh.

Objective: Comparing the clinical outcomes of laparoscopic and abdominal sacrocolpopexy in vaginal vault prolapse post-hysterectomy’s patient. Method: Systematic search data is performed on medical database (PUBMED, Cochrane Database) using keyword:(1) vault prolapse [title] AND (2) laparoscopic[title] AND sacrocolpopexy[title]. Inclusion criteria:(1) randomized controlled trial and observational studies, (2) women with vaginal vault prolapse post hysterectomy, (3) intervention studied: laparoscopic (LSC) and abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC), (4) the entire fully accessible papers can be accessed and data can be accurately analyzed. Comparison about clinical outcomes of LSC and ASC was performed using narrative analysis and meta-analysis (RevMan). Results: Three studies compared clinical outcomes of LSC and ASC with a total of 243 samples (118 in LSC and 125 in ASC group). There was no significant difference in the incidence of complications between LSC and ASC (OR 1.10;95%CI 0.58-2.08). LSC was associated with less blood loss (MD 111.64 mL,95%CI-166.13 - -57.15 mL) and shorter length of hospital stay (MD -1.82 days;95%CI -2.52- -1.12 days) but requires a longer operating time (MD 22.82 minutes,95%CI 0.43-45.22 minutes). There was no statistically significant difference to anatomical outcomes (measurement of point C on POP-Q), subjective outcomes measured by PGI-I and reoperation numbers (repeat surgical interventions) for prolapse recurrence between LSC and ASC groups after one year of follow-up. Conclusions: LSC showed similar anatomic results compared to ASC with less blood loss and shorter length of hospital stay in management patient with vaginal vault prolapse.

Abstract Introduction and hypothesis Sacrocolpopexy and sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF) have been used for the restoration of apical support. Studies comparing sacrocolpopexy and SSLF have reported conflicting results. We aim to assess the current evidence regarding efficiency and the complications of sacrocolpopexy compared with SSLF. Methods We searched PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library and performed a systematic review meta-analysis to assess the two surgical approaches. Results 5Five randomized controlled trials, 8 retrospective studies, and 2 prospective studies including 4,120 cases were identified. Compared with abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC), SSLF was associated with a lower success rate (88.32% and 91.45%; OR 0.52; 95% CI 0.29–0.95; p = 0.03), higher recurrence (11.58% and 8.32%; OR 1.97; 95% CI 1.04–3.46; p = 0.04), and dyspareunia rate (14.36% and 4.67%; OR 3.10; 95% CI 1.28–7.50; p = 0.01). Patients in this group may benefit from shorter operative time (weighted mean difference −25.08 min; 95% CI −42.29 to −7.88; p = 0.004), lower hemorrhage rate (0.85% and 2.58%; OR 0.45; 95% CI 0.25–0.85; p = 0.009), wound infection rate (3.30% and 5.76%; OR 0.55; 95% CI 0.39–0.77; p = 0.0005), and fewer gastrointestinal complications (1.33% and 6.19%; OR 0.33; 95% CI 0.15–0.76; p = 0.009). Conclusion Both sacrocolpopexy and SSLF offer an efficient alternative to the restoration of apical support. When anatomical durability and sexual function is a priority, ASC may be the preferred option. When considering factors of mesh erosion, operative time, gastrointestinal complications, hemorrhage, and wound infections, SSLF may be the better option.

Background: Hysterectomy is one of the most performed surgical procedures during lifetime. Almost 10% of women who have had a hysterectomy because of prolapse symptoms. Sacrocolpopexy (sacral colpopexy) is a surgical technique to repair pelvic organ prolapses. Specifically, it is intended to address apical or vaginal vault prolapse in women with lower perioperative morbidity, shorter hospital stay and allows a long-term anatomical restoration. It provides excellent apical support with lower rate of recurrence. Aim of present study was to assess the efficiency of conventional method of sacrocolpopexy and to assess the follow up complaints of patients.Methods: This study is conducted in maternal and child health wing of Sarojini Naidu medical college from June 2019 till December 2019. Sacrospinous fixation was performed with conventional needle holder as compared to Miya hook. Data were collected from participants using a structured questionnaire. Follow up was conducted at 6 weeks and 12 weeks.Results: In this study there were 43.3% pre menopausal patients and 53.6% menopausal patients. Maximum patients were multiparous i.e. para 2 (36.6%). Maximum patient belongs to POP Q stage 3. After 6 weeks of surgery maximum patients had pain in abdomen i.e. 3.33%, dyspareunia 8.33% and 100% success rate of sacropexy.Conclusions: Sacrocolpopexy is a cost effective and safe procedure with high anatomical cure and patient satisfaction rate and low intra-operative and. postoperative complications as well as recurrence rates.

Abdominal sacrocolpopexy is the gold-standard treatment for apical compartment prolapse, as it is more effective and durable than the transvaginal approach. In the current era of minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy techniques have been described, but have not gained popularity due to their complexity and steep learning curves. To overcome this problem, robotic sacrocolpopexy was introduced, and has shown equivalent outcomes and safety compared to open and laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy based on findings that have been accumulated over 15 years.
