Sacrospinous ligament vault suspension

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Various surgical techniques are available to correct pelvic organ prolapse. Owing to recent warnings about the use of mesh in pelvic surgeries and its related complications, sacrospinous ligament vault suspension may play an important role again. Sacrospinous ligament vault suspension is an extraperitoneal vaginal approach that is advantageous in patients with multiple previous abdominal surgeries. It offers a safe and effective native tissue alternative repair technique for the correction of post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse. Adequate knowledge of the pararectal anatomy is essential in order to perform this procedure.
