BACKGROUND: Vaginal dilation is the first choice of treatment for women with a short vagina due to Rokitansky syndrome. Although the neovagina lacks pelvic support, prolapse of the neovagina is a surprisingly rare complication of treatment. Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is recommended in the treatment of posthysterectomy vault prolapse in younger women but has not been used to treat neovaginal prolapse.
CASE: A 23-year-old woman with Rokitansky syndrome presented with a symptomatic prolapse of the neovagina. This was successfully treated with a laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy.
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS: Laparosopic sacrocolpopexy appears to be an effective treatment in the unusual situation of vaginal prolapse after dilation.
