Surgical Procedures to Correct Prolapse

Anterior colporrhaphy - A vaginal procedure to reestablish the supports between the bladder and vagina to fix a cystocele. A synthetic mesh or organic graft material made be placed to reinforce this repair.

Paravaginal repair (vaginal or abdominal approach) - Support the vaginal wall by attaching it to the pelvic sidewall to fix a cystocele. A synthetic mesh or organic graft material may be placed to reinforce this repair.

Posterior colporrhaphy - A vaginal procedure to reestablish the supports between the vagina and rectum to fix a rectocele; a synthetic mesh or organic graft material may be placed to reinforce this repair.

Transvaginal enterocele repair - Close the space between the vagina and rectum through a vaginal incision to prevent the small bowel from pushing the vagina out. This procedure will also resuspend the top of the vagina.

Total abdominal hysterectomy (with or without bilateral salpingo/oophorectomy) - Remove the uterus (including the cervix), tubes and ovaries through an abdominal incision.

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy - Removal of the uterus (including the cervix), and possibly the tubes and ovaries through a laparoscopic approach.

Total vaginal hysterectomy (with or without bilateral salpingo/oophorectomy) - Remove the uterus (including the cervix), tubes and ovaries through a vaginal incision.

Bilateral salpingo/oophorectomy - Removal of tubes and ovaries; performed either abdominally, vaginally or laparoscopically.

Uterosacral ligament suspension - Suspend the top of the vagina to the uteroscral ligaments; this can be performed vaginally, abdominally or laparoscopically

Sacrospinous vaginal vault suspension - A vaginal procedure that attaches the top of the prolapsed vagina to a ligament in the pelvis.

Sacral colpopexy - A procedure, performed abdominally or laparoscopically, that attaches the top of the prolapsed vagina to the sacrum using either synthetic mesh or cadaveric material.

Illiococcygeal fascial attachment - A vaginal procedure that attaches the top of the prolapsed vagina to pararectal supportive tissue.

Supracervical hysterectomy - Removal of most of the uterus, leaving the cervix behind; this approach can be done abdominally or laparoscopically

Total colpectomy - Complete closure of the vagina to correct prolapse. This procedure is only performed when the patient is absolutely sure that she will never want to have intercourse again.
