Vaginal agenesis is a rare condition that can be treated successfully with a variety of nonoperative as well as surgical procedures. The difference between most of the surgical techniques lies in the material used to line the newly created canal. Skin grafts, peritoneum, and amnion have all been reported for this purpose. In the present study, four women with vaginal agenesis underwent surgical construction of an artificial vagina using Interceed Absorbable Adhesion Barrier to cover an inflatable stent placed within the neovagina. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications, and epithelialization of the neovagina was complete by 3-6 months. All four subjects were satisfied with the results of the surgery and none of the women reported difficulty complying with postoperative care. This modification of the Abbe-McIndoe technique does not require a separate operative procedure to harvest a lining for the neovagina. The use of Interceed may reduce the cost, operative time, and morbidity associated with other vaginoplasty techniques.
