Satisfactory Outcome of Various Novel Modified Laparoscopic Neovaginoplasty Using Autologous Peritoneal Graft

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Management of vaginal agenesis in Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome patients is by creating functional neovagina through surgical or nonsurgical route. Surgical repair using minimally invasive technique is a favorable option in creating neovagina. In this study, the patients underwent neovaginoplasty. Clinical follow-ups were done at 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. The primary outcomes were anatomic and functional successes; anatomical success was defined as a ≥6 cm-long neovagina that allows for easy introduction of two fingers, and functional success was defined with Female Sexual Function Index FSFI-6 questionnaire score above 19. Modified neovaginoplasty using autologous peritoneal graft was performed on the patients (n = 6). Follow-up showed mean vaginal lengths of 8.16 cm, mean surgery time of 175 min, mean blood loss of 59.17 ml, and mean duration of hospital stay of 2 days, with an average FSFI-6 score of 25,2. Therefore, we concluded that laparoscopic approach using modified technique of autologous peritoneal graft provides satisfactory result.
