Only in Hospital Plodnost in Macedonia – third operation in a row of this kind!!!
In an older woman, with a previously removed uterus due to weakness of muscles and ligaments of the pelvic bottom, the vagina drops out of the body. An operative correction was also performed via the vaginal route elsewhere, without success.
“We applied a new laparoscopic vaginal lift technique to the pectineal ligament on the inside of the pubic bone in the abdomen. This is a new technique and the initial results show that it is much better than the so-called sacropexy, when the prolapsed vagina is lifted by the posterior pelvic bone (sacrocolpopexy). After such procedure, a high percentage of women have postoperative defecation problems. With pectopexy, there are no such problems. We have a longer lasting “follow up”.
The previous two patients have a very good postoperative course. This is a mutilating operation performed by skilled and experienced laparoscopists. In Macedonia it is only performed in our hospital.
The inserted mesh is permanent and non-resorbable. After we perform more such operations, we will publish our results in the international literature. We are working on a prospective, evidence-based medical study.
The successfully completed operation is our greatest pleasure”, says Dr. Hristijan Trpchevski, head of the endoscopic surgery department.
