The aim of our study is to describe the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: Twenty eight case series of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy which were performed by the same surgeon were analysed retrospectively by reviewing medical records for peri- and postoperative data. Clinical outcomes and anatomical outcomes based on pelvic organ prolapse quantification system were assessed pre- and postoperatively. RESULTS: Initially, thirty one cases were tried and three cases were converted to open surgery (9.7%). Twenty eight cases with a mean age of 56 years (range, 34-69 years) were performed. Fifty three cases of concomitant surgery were performed with laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy. The mean operation time was 298 minutes. The minor perioperative complications of 3 cases (a case of wound hematoma and 2 cases of voiding dysfunction) occurred. There was no reoperation related to mesh or recurrent prolapse for a mean follow-up period of 20 months (range, 6-70 months). CONCLUSION: Our results confi rm that laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is a feasible and safe surgical modality for pelvic organ prolapse.
