Abdominal Sacropolpopexy - What it is

It is an operation performed from the abdomen to support the vagina to the ligament on the spine (after previous or concurrent surgery to remove the womb) by using a synthetic mesh.

Why Is It Performed?

It is performed to treat severe protrusion of the vagina after removal of the womb.

The protrusion usually bothers you because of:

  • An uncomfortable lump
  • Urinary difficulties (e.g. incomplete emptying of the bladder)
  • Bowel difficulties (e.g. constipation, incomplete emptying of bowels)
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Bleeding

The objective of the operation is to relieve your symptoms, restore vaginal anatomy (as much as possible) and sexual function.
