Vaginal Vault Suspension


With more and more women living long enough to reach menopause, pelvic prolapse  has become a widespread health issue. Prolapse is the medical condition caused by pelvic organs that “drop” or “collapse” into the vaginal vault or cavity, which can cause pain and complications. Besides the general pelvic prolapse, the condition can be more localized, involving one organ or one location, such as:

A remedy for any kind of pelvic prolapse is a surgical procedure performed in gynecology NYC office called vaginal vault suspension. A vaginal vault suspension restores your vaginal cavity by reinforcing supportive structures within your vagina, pushing your organs back into place. According to the National Institutes of Health and based on gynecologist Midtown NYC doctor Zelmanovich, who has an extensive experience with this procedure in our gyn center, vaginal vault suspension is a safe, proven procedure with long-term health benefits.

Women Who Need a Vaginal Vault Suspension

There are cases of pelvic organ prolapse that some women won’t even notice. You may never experience symptoms from a mild prolapse. If this describes your condition, the best treatment is simply more frequent visits to your OBGYN. Surgery for something that doesn’t bother you is not recommended.

However, if you have severe symptoms — such as problems emptying your bladder, inability to have sex, or daily pain or discomfort — you may turn to surgical options. While other treatments, such as a pessary (a cone placed in your vagina to support the cavity), can help, surgery is the only known way to address severe pelvic organ prolapse. If you’re younger than age 45 or not done having children, you may be encouraged to wait, as you run an increased risk of another prolapse event.

Vaginal Vault Suspension Pros and Cons

To correct severe pelvic organ prolapse, your OBGYN can use several different approaches, but a vaginal vault suspension is performed through your vaginal opening. A vaginal vault suspension involves suturing the top or apex of your vaginal wall to ligaments in your pelvis. The sutures, which dissolve naturally over time, restore your vaginal cavity.

The advantages of this procedure include:

  • The procedure can be down in about an hour.
  • It’s an outpatient procedure, so you can recover at home without a stay in the hospital.
  • You OBGYN makes a small vaginal incision, but none on your abdominal skin.
  • On average, your total recovery time is three to five weeks, faster than from other surgeries.

The disadvantages and risks of the procedure include:

  • Less dependable results than from a pelvic floor reconstruction, which is a laparoscopic procedure
  • Unexpected bleeding, which can be corrected if caught in time
  • Bladder or bowel damage, causing incontinence or constipation
  • Dangerous blood clots, which are extremely rare
  • Possible pain during future sexual intercourse
