Uterosacral Ligament Suspension vs Robotic Sacrocolpopexy

2016-04-18 17:38:22 | BioPortfolio


This cross sectional, two cohort study seeks to investigate both anatomic outcome and subjective, functional outcome of uterosacral ligament suspension versus robotic sacrocolpopexy and compare patient satisfaction, bladder function, sexual function and complication rate for each procedure.This study will provide a better understanding about the durability of these procedures and long term complication.


Pelvic organ prolapse is a common problem affecting many women and there is a 12.6% lifetime risk of undergoing reconstructive pelvic surgery. There are several surgical options available to patients undergoing reconstruction for pelvic organ prolapse, however addressing the apex is recommended to achieve the most durable outcomes. Two of the most commonly performed procedures for apical prolapse repair are uterosacral ligament suspension and robotic sacrocolpopexy.

High uterosacral ligament suspension is a native tissue repair which is performed by affixing the vaginal apex to the bilateral uterosacral ligaments using permanent or delayed-absorbable sutures. This is performed typically in a vaginal approach. Sacrocolpopexy is a performed by attaching the anterior and posterior vaginal walls to the sacral promontory using synthetic mesh, typically polypropylene. This procedure can be performed by an abdominal approach, a laparoscopic approach or with the assistance of the da Vinci robotic system. In recent years, robotic sacrocolpopexy has largely replaced the abdominal approach, and become the procedure of choice for minimally invasive surgeons.

Most studies evaluating sacrocolpopexy outcomes were performed prior to the popularity of robotics and therefore concentrate on abdominal sacrocolpopexy.

This cross sectional, two cohort study will compare outcomes of uterosacral ligament suspension versus robotic sacrocolpopexy and will give pelvic surgeons a better understanding about the durability of these procedures, and possible longer term complication rates.

Subjects will be contacted and asked to come to the office for a visit and completion of questionnaires. If they cannot come to the office, an ICF and questionnaires will be mailed to them to complete and return.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).

Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.

The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.

The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
