It is a technique used for genital prolapses treatment in women (bladder, uterus and intestine fall), which is the result of previous pregnancies associated to the laxity of the structures that form the pelvic floor, which may occur in the aging process. There are many studies demonstrating that approximately 40% of women above the age of 50 suffer from this type of problem. The surgical correction of the genital prolapses can basically be performed by the vaginal or abdominal approach (the latter one being called the high approach, traditionally performed through an incision).
Several series of comparative studies, followed up for a long time, reveal that the abdominal access undeniably presents the best results. When this correction is done via the vaginal access, it can be said that the probability of having to operate again, doubles. However, there are disadvantages in the abdominal sacrocolpopexy: it requires a longer operation time, the recuperation period is longer and there is an abdominal scar due to the surgical incision.
With the intention of minimizing such disadvantages and, at the same time, trying to keep good results with the solution for the problem through the open passage, a new treatment technique was proposed, named laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy.
MASTER CLINICA has been offering this treatment option to its patients, making use of surgical screens especially developed for gynecological usage, with excellent functional results and long-term success rates of around 95%.
