OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to compare laparoscopic and open sacral colpopexies for efficacy and safety.

STUDY DESIGN: Charts were reviewed for 56 patients who underwent laparoscopic sacral colpopexy and 61 patients who underwent open sacral colpopexy. Demographic and hospital data, complications, and follow-up visits were reviewed.

RESULTS: Mean follow-up was 13.5 +/- 12.1 months and 15.7 +/- 18.1 months in the laparoscopic and open groups, respectively. Mean operating time was significantly greater in the laparoscopic versus open cohort, 269 +/- 65 minutes and 218 +/- 60 minutes, respectively (P < .0001). Estimated blood loss (172 +/- 166 mL vs 234 +/- 149 mL; P = .04) and hospital stay (1.8 +/- 1.0 days vs 4.0 +/- 1.8 days; P < .0001) were significantly less in the laparoscopic group than the open group. Complication and reoperation rates were similar.

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic and open sacral colpopexies have comparable clinical outcomes. Although laparoscopic sacral colpopexy requires longer operating time, hospital stay is significantly decreased.
