Robotic-Assisted Sacrocolpopexy for Vaginal Vault Prolapse
The uterus is held in position by pelvic muscles, ligaments and other tissues. If the pelvic muscles and connective tissues weaken, the uterus may drop out of its normal position, this is called prolapse.
Pelvic prolapse is usually accompanied by some degree of vaginal vault prolapse. This occurs when the upper part of the vagina loses its shape and sags into the vaginal canal or outside the vagina. Pelvic prolapse may also involve sagging or slipping of other pelvic organs, including the bladder, urethra and rectum.
For many women, sacrocolpopexy may be the best treatment option to repair pelvic prolapse, including vaginal vault prolapse. In this procedure, surgical mesh is used to hold the affected pelvic organ(s) in the correct anatomical position. Robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy requires only a few tiny incisions, which allows you to get back to your life faster than with traditional open surgery.
