- New Laparoscopic Technique of Hysteropexy for Uterine Retrodisplacement: Bologna Technique. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Minim Invasive Gynecol 2016 Jul-Aug; 23(5):675
- CONCLUSIONS: The Bologna technique hysteropexy is simple and quick to perform. It is effective in suspending the uterus in anteverted and anteflexed positions at 6-month ultrasound follow-up. No perioperative complications were recorded. It can be done with a standard surgical suture-passer and does not add additional cost to surgery. Furthermore, an absorbable suture is desirable for fertile women.

We report a case of a pregnancy and follow the delivery of a young woman who previously underwent a laparoscopic sacral colpopexy (LSC) for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). A 38-year-old woman with POP desires pregnancy who after unsuccessful medical treatment with pessary underwent a laparoscopic uterine ventrosuspension (LUV). However, this procedure also failed and there was an immediate relapse. Thus, LSC was then performed. After which, she became pregnant culminating in elective caesarean delivery. The LUV failure was documented by a POP-Q classification and dynamic pelvic magnetic resonance (PMR) which was carried out 1 month after the surgery. When the same assessment was conducted after the LSC, it showed an optimal POP correction. The short-term post-delivery follow-up exhibited a small prolapse relapse, which remained stable 48 months after surgery as confirmed by a new PMR. Surgical correction of POP is possible in women with pregnancy desires. The result is variable and links to the POP stage and other surgical interventions.
- Fourteen-year experience with laparoscopic ventrosuspension in patients with retroverted and retroflected uterus and pelvic pain syndromes. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Minim Invasive Gynecol 2010 Nov-Dec; 17(6):749-53
- CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic ventrosuspension is clearly beneficial in women with a retroverted and retroflected uterus who have pelvic pain syndromes, even in the long term.
- Significance of laparoscopy in the management of chronic pelvic pain. [Journal Article]
- EJEur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2007; 133(2):223-6
- CONCLUSIONS: Based on our retrospective data analysis we believe that laparoscopy is an essential method for the diagnosis and management of chronic pelvic pain.
- A review of laparoscopic uterine suspension procedures for uterine preservation. [Review]
- COCurr Opin Obstet Gynecol 2005; 17(5):541-6
- CONCLUSIONS: The first surgical option for uterine preservation is uterine suspension to the uterosacral ligaments. If the uterosacral ligaments cannot be identified or the uterosacral ligaments are weak and unusable, then laparoscopic sacral colpohysteropexy is a reliable second option. Uterine suspension to the round ligaments has an unacceptably high failure rate and is not an effective, durable alternative.

Deep dyspareunia, often described as pain resulting from pelvic thrusting during sexual intercourse, is relatively common and has many causes. To date, feasible surgical interventions for deep dyspareunia are very rare. The two procedures which have been mentioned in the literature for the treatment of deep dyspareunia were laparoscopic uterosacral ligament ablation (LUNA) and uterine ventrosuspension. We report the case of a young female patient, aged 32, gravida 3, parity 2, presenting with deep dyspareunia and primary dysmenorrhea for 4 years. She had both subjective and objective improvements for dyspareunia and primary dysmenorrhea following LUNA operation. Further large-scaled randomized controlled trial is mandatory to verify the surgical effect of LUNA operation for patients with deep dyspareunia.
- Long-term follow-up (5-20 years) after uterine ventrosuspension for chronic pelvic pain and deep dyspareunia. [Journal Article]
- GOGynecol Obstet Invest 2003; 55(4):216-9
- CONCLUSIONS: The long-term outcome of patients undergoing uterine ventrosuspesnion approximates to 50% success rate, with no significant difference comparing the approach of laparotomy versus laparoscopy.

A case of chronic urinary retention due to bladder outflow obstruction presenting at 7 months postpartum, following a history of early puerperal voiding difficulties, is outlined. The cause was found to be a markedly retroverted uterus obstructing the urethra. Laparoscopic ventrosuspension was performed, converting preoperative urinary residuals of over 400 ml to zero postoperatively.
