Demonstration of a box-stitch technique for laparoscopic uterosacral ligament suspension
We demonstrate a novel box stitch technique of laparoscopic post-hysterectomy uterosacral ligament suspension for apical prolapse in restorative pelvic reconstructive surgery.
Material and methods
We present a case of a 58yo female with symptomatic stage III pelvic organ prolapse with a history of a total abdominal hysterectomy 30 years prior. She strongly desired the usage of no synthetic or biologic mesh for her restorative surgical repair. This video provides a step-by-step guide on how to perform a laparoscopic box stitch as a technique for uterosacral ligament suspension as an apical native tissue option for patients with the need for post hysterectomy apical prolapse.
This video demonstrates a novel box-stitch technique of laparoscopic post-hysterectomy uterosacral ligament suspension as a native tissue option for minimally invasive reconstructive surgery. The procedure is a reasonable option to address apical prolapse in patients who do not desire or who are unable to have synthetic or biologic mesh placed for restorative reconstructive prolapse surgery.
