Abstract Share this page

During a 12-year study period from 1972 to 1984, 56 patients underwent abdominal sacral colpopexy with retroperitoneal interposition of a suspensory hammock between a prolapsed vaginal vault and the anterior surface of the sacrum. They were followed from 6 months to 12 1/2 years, and constitute the basis of this report. In most patients, a synthetic mesh was the material interposed. Hysterectomy had previously been performed on 53 patients, and in two patients there was congenital absence of the uterus. Indications for abdominal sacral colpopexy, surgical technique, complications, and results of operation are discussed. Seven additional patients underwent this operation after termination of the defined study period.
