A condition called pelvic organ prolapse, or POP, occurs when the organs in your pelvis drop or fall out of place. The uterus, bladder, vagina or rectum descend from their normal positions during POP and can even protrude uncomfortably from your vagina opening.

Sacrocolpopexy is a procedure designed to treat POP when the uterus or vaginal wall are prolapsed. Robotic-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is considered the gold standard treatment for women with pelvic organ prolapse.

And it’s a welcomed gynecology treatment, given the high rate of POP among women aged 50 to 89. Nearly 30 percent of women in this age range experience POP. And you are at even greater risk if you have had multiple births, have an increasingly large body mass or had a hysterectomy. These weaken the vaginal floor, which then requires treatment to repair.

Surgical Techniques

Sacrocolpopexy initially only was performed through open abdominal sacrocolpopexy surgery. Yet even with the associated surgical risks and long recovery time, the procedure proved to be 85 to 100 percent effective in treating POP. The technique restores both the anatomy and the function of your vagina by creating a mesh holder attached to the back and top of the vagina, lifting and holding it into its natural position.

With the advent of robotics, however, the treatment now can be performed with minimally invasive techniques, lowering the risks and the recovery time. And the success rate is just as accurate as that of the more hands-on approach previously performed through an abdominal incision.

Da Vinci Robotic Sacrocolpopexy

Complications from laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy surgery to treat POP continued, according to researchers at the Ohio State University Medical Center. Bleeding at the site of the laparoscope, injury to the bowels and other nearby tissue and organs, hernias and vaginal erosions all continued to increase the chance of complications even though the risk of open abdominal surgery were minimized.

In 1999, the development of the da Vinci robotic system as a surgical platform brought the field to an entirely new level of accuracy and dependability. The complexity of the sacrocolpopexy surgery, as well as other pelvic procedures, was greatly reduced. Robotic sacrocolpopexy now has become the choice for many surgeons.
