During 42 months of study, 150 cases of laparoscopic ventrosuspension were performed at Al-Azhar University hospitals. In 98 patients (65.33%), the primary complaint was infertility. Retroversion of the uterus was the only abnormality detected during laparoscopic examinations. The remaining 52 patients (34.66%) had retroversion of the uterus concomitant with other conditions requiring surgery. Ventrosuspension was performed via the laparoscope by applying Falope rings (KLI, Newtown, Pennsylvania USA) to the round ligaments. These patients were followed up for 6-30 months. Pregnancy occurred in 29 infertile patients and improvement of backache, deep dyspareunia, congestive dysmenorrhea and leukorrhea occurred in 81.25%, 89.25%, 68.18% and 56.66%, respectively. The technique is simple and safe; it reduces the length of hospitalization and can be performed concomitant with other surgical procedures.
