Robotic-assisted Abdominal Sacrocolpopexy is both a feasible and safe method for apical prolapse repair of the vagina.

Study summary:

Robotics offers many advantages over traditional laparoscopy: 1) intuitive movement of instruments, 2) "wristed instruments" with increased degrees of freedom, 3) enhanced 12X magnification, 4) 3-D depth perception, 5)tremor filtration, 6) enhanced surgeon comfort and ergonomics, and 7) a steeper learning curve. With robotic assistance, the surgeon can comfortably perform precise, repetitive motions, with greater dexterity and vision. To date, there have been a small number of published cases of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy and two cases of series utilizing robotic-assistance. There have been no prospective, randomized, controlled trials comparing either of these modalities to conventional abdominal sacrocolpopexy.


Inclusion Criteria: - Non-pregnant women - Age >18 years - Eligible for sacrocolpopexy - Prior hysterectomy - Stage II or greater post hysterectomy vault prolapse - Satisfied parity - Patients electing for an abdominal repair to posthysterectomy vault prolapse Exclusion Criteria: - Prisoners - Cognitively impaired adults - Not medically stable to undergo laparoscopic or abdominal surgery - Previous pelvic/vaginal radiation - Participants electing to proceed with a vaginal repair of vaginal vault prolapse - Participants electing to proceed with the traditional abdominal sacrocolpopexy - History of recurrent vaginal infections - Known urologic and/or gynecologic cancer
