Traditional Anterior and Posterior Vaginal Prolapse Repair

The traditional vaginal prolapse repair surgery is the Anterior and Posterior Colporrhaphy. This is done for women with a smaller cystocele or rectocele. The procedure involves a plication (bringing together) of the supportive tissue between the bladder and vagina, and rectum and vagina using sutures. In women with larger defects, a more extensive vaginal prolapse repair or da Vinci sacrocolpexy may be recommended. Another alternative to the anterior and posterior colporrhaphy may be a laparoscopic uterosacral colpopexy.
