Background: In 2023, our Centre validated a surgical approach for patients with anterior/apical prolapse associated with severe posterior colpocele, using a laparoscopic posterior vaginal plication (LPP) combined with standard sacral colpopexy (LSC), demonstrating significant benefits in terms of anatomical repair.
Objectives: A step-by-step video demonstration of Laparoscopic Posterior Vaginal Plication (LPP) combined with “two-mesh” Sacral Colpopexy (LSC).
Materials and Methods: Surgical technique of a LSC with 2 separate meshes is described.
Results: This video-article describes, with a step-by-step approach, a combined prosthetic and fascial laparoscopic technique to treat severe posterior colpocele.
Conclusions: LPP can be considered a feasible procedure during a standard LSC in patients with concomitant severe posterior prolapse.
