5 Reasons to Utilize Robotic Assistance in Gynecologic Laparoscopy Sacrocolpoperineopexy +/- ventral rectopexy Sacrocolpoperineopexy +/- ventral rectopexy Also with posterior rectopexy depending on the indications and surgeon preference Also with posterior rectopexy depending on the indications and surgeon preference Sacral Hysterocervicocolpoperineopexy Sacral Hysterocervicocolpoperineopexy Including other modifications Including other modifications Supracervical hysterectomy and concomitant sacrocolpopexy Supracervical hysterectomy and concomitant sacrocolpopexy Especially with lesser skilled assistants Especially with lesser skilled assistants

6 Case #1 58 year old s/p previous laparoscopic enterocele repair with uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and rectocele repair with cadaveric fascia lata who complains of outlet dysfunction constipation. 58 year old s/p previous laparoscopic enterocele repair with uterosacral vaginal vault suspension and rectocele repair with cadaveric fascia lata who complains of outlet dysfunction constipation. She splints perineum to defecate She splints perineum to defecate Examination shows Stage 2 vaginal apex prolapse with recurrent anterior rectocele and perineal descent Examination shows Stage 2 vaginal apex prolapse with recurrent anterior rectocele and perineal descent Defocography confirms exam and demonstrates no intussusception Defocography confirms exam and demonstrates no intussusception

10 Combined Rectal Prolapse Surgery Video Video Surgical technique Surgical technique 24% of women have pelvic floor disorders 24% of women have pelvic floor disorders Combined rectal and uterine/vaginal apex prolapse is uncommon Combined rectal and uterine/vaginal apex prolapse is uncommon Mucosal prolapse/Intussusception above anus: Ventral rectopexy Mucosal prolapse/Intussusception above anus: Ventral rectopexy Full thickness prolapse: Posterior dissection and direct attachment of rectosigmoid mesentary to sacrum Full thickness prolapse: Posterior dissection and direct attachment of rectosigmoid mesentary to sacrum

14 Case #2 59 year old female with CREST syndrome and chronic Stage IV uterovaginal and full thickness rectal prolapse ( 9 cm beyond anal verge) 59 year old female with CREST syndrome and chronic Stage IV uterovaginal and full thickness rectal prolapse ( 9 cm beyond anal verge) Plan Robotic-assisted laparoscopic SCH, sacralcolpopexy, and ventral rectopexy Plan Robotic-assisted laparoscopic SCH, sacralcolpopexy, and ventral rectopexy Segment shows dissection Segment shows dissection

16 Hysterosacrocolpopexy Video Video Surgical technique Surgical technique Cure rates for open procedure are % Cure rates for open procedure are % Improved quality of life and sexual function Improved quality of life and sexual function No data regarding laparoscopic or robotic sacro- hysterocolpopexy No data regarding laparoscopic or robotic sacro- hysterocolpopexy E Barranger et al, AJOG 2003 E Constantini et al, European Urol 2005

17 Dissection of RV and VV spaces, formation of broad ligament windows

18 Graft measurement and formation

19 Graft attachment and tunneling

20 Graft attachment to the sacrum

21 Hysterosacral Colpopexy Pearls Understand the contraindications Understand the contraindications Negative uterine pathology must be confirmed Negative uterine pathology must be confirmed This particular technique is not recommended in women desiring future childbearing This particular technique is not recommended in women desiring future childbearing Option is biologic graft or tunneling arms underneath Cardinal ligament and ureter Option is biologic graft or tunneling arms underneath Cardinal ligament and ureter Review the risks and benefits thoroughly with the patient Review the risks and benefits thoroughly with the patient Future hysterectomy may be more difficult Future hysterectomy may be more difficult The procedure leads to improved anatomical outcomes and resolution of anterior apical vaginal wall and uterine prolapse The procedure leads to improved anatomical outcomes and resolution of anterior apical vaginal wall and uterine prolapse

22 Supracervical Hysterectomy with Sacrocolpopexy Surgical technique and rationale Surgical technique and rationale A combination of both procedures but A combination of both procedures but I use bipolar to cauterize the endocervical canal I use bipolar to cauterize the endocervical canal I stitch the canal closed I stitch the canal closed Combine TVH or TLH with ASC but Combine TVH or TLH with ASC but Recommend 2 layered closure of cuff Recommend 2 layered closure of cuff If mesh is sewn on vaginally to save time, counsel your patients regarding increased risk of mesh erosion (Menefee et al, SGS 2010) If mesh is sewn on vaginally to save time, counsel your patients regarding increased risk of mesh erosion (Menefee et al, SGS 2010) Make sure that the patient has negative Paps and HPV testing Make sure that the patient has negative Paps and HPV testing

23 Conclusion Robotic-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy continues with widespread adoption despite lack of supporting data Robotic-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy continues with widespread adoption despite lack of supporting data This technology has enabled many surgeons to become minimally invasive surgeons This technology has enabled many surgeons to become minimally invasive surgeons Suture labor, difficult dissection, difficult access of surgical sites, and ease of manipulation are reasons to utilize this technology compared to conventional laparoscopic surgery Suture labor, difficult dissection, difficult access of surgical sites, and ease of manipulation are reasons to utilize this technology compared to conventional laparoscopic surgery Sacral colpoperineopexy, sacral hysteropexy, concomitant rectopexy, and combined SCH and ASC are facilitated with robotic assistance Sacral colpoperineopexy, sacral hysteropexy, concomitant rectopexy, and combined SCH and ASC are facilitated with robotic assistance
