Laparoscopic uterine sling suspension: a new technique of uterine suspension in women desiring surgical management of uterine prolapse with uterine conservation.

The surgical management of uterine prolapse in women who wish to retain their uterus remains a challenge. Several techniques have been reported using open abdominal, laparoscopic and vaginal approaches. The laparoscopic approach offers both excellent intraoperative visualisation of supportive and adjacent structures and quick postoperative recovery. Currently, laparoscopic suspension of the uterus to the round ligaments, uterosacral ligaments, suture and synthetic mesh suspension to the sacral promontory have been reported. This report describes a new surgical technique of laparoscopic uterine suspension, which has been performed successfully in eight women. Mersilene tape is used to suspend the uterus to the sacral promontory bilaterally and to recreate new uterosacral ligaments.

A prolapsed uterus can be repositioned to a normal pelvic location using a mersilene tape that is driven through the substance of the cervix and at the same time encircling the uterine cervix recreating the pericervical ring. The other end of the tape is anchored to the promontory of the sacrum through a right sided retroperitoneal para-rectal route.
