Abstract

A rate com;lication of hysterectomy is complete prolapse and inversion of vagina. This can occur whether the hysterectomy was abdominal or vaginal and cystocele and/or enterocele is often associated with this condition. Traditionally, prolapse has been treated by surgery, the types of operation for prolapse are generally but not always, carried out through the vaginal rather than through the abdominal surgical route. We experienced five cases who had repair of posthysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse by transabdominal sacral colpopexy and report with brief review of literatures.
