Surgery of genital prolapse
Sacrocolpopexy by laparoscopy enables the suspension of the vagina by attaching prostheses to the sacral promontory (known as lumbar-sacral rachis). This operation, done through small incisions in the abdomen, with video assistance, offers the same results as when using the vaginal tract.
Postoperative pain is greatly reduced with a laparoscopy, and the prostheses are well tolerated since the vagina does not need to be opened.
This type of surgery enables to treat and correct, in 80% to 90 % of the time, the prolapse and therefore improve the woman’s quality of life. Nevertheless, the anomalies that generated the prolapse remain whether from deliveries, the effects of age on tissues, obesity and so forth. It is estimated that 30% of women will need to again undergo surgery due to a recurrence.
