Abdominal sacrohysteropexy, uterovaginal prolapse


Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess the safety of sacrohystcopxy by determining intraoperative and post-operative complications and its effectiveness by pelvic organ prolapse recurrence on follow up. Study Design: Prospective study. Setting: Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics Unit-II DHQ Hospital PMC, Faisalabad. Period: Jan-2014 to Jan-2017. Material & Methods: Patients with uterovaginal prolapse, admitted through OPD were selected for abdominal sacrohysteropexy. Variables of study including duration of surgery, any intra-operative and post operative complications, need of intra operative blood transfusion, post operative hospital stay; recurrence of POP, number of pregnancies in 06 moths follow up were recorded. Results: During this study period, 319 patients were admitted with uterovaginal prolapse. 32 (10.03%) cases were selected for abdominal sacrohysteropexy. In these 32 patients, 03 (9.37%) were <30years of age, 21(65.62%) were between 30-35 years and 8 (25%) were between 35-40 years of age. About 2(6.25%) were unmarried, while 30(93.7%) were married. In these married women 14(43.75%) were multiparas, another 14(43.75%) were para 1 or 2, while 4(12.5%) were para 3 or more. Duration of surgery was 40-45 minutes in 31(96.87%) patients. In 28(87.5%) cases per operative blood loss was <150ml while in 4(12.5%) it was estimated to be >150ml but less than 300ml. Post operatively only 1(3.12%) case developed wound sepsis and it was the only one (3.12%) who was discharged on 7th post operative day, while rest 31(96.87%) were discharged on 3rd post operative day. No recurrence was noticed in 06 moths follow up, while 2(6.25%) patients became pregnant. Conclusion: Abdominal sacrohysteropexy is a safe and an effective treatment in terms of overall anatomical and functional outcome, complications, post operative recovery, length of hospital stay and sexual functioning, in women who desire uterine and hence fertility preservation.
