The following is a description of a combined vaginal and laparoscopic repair of vaginal eversion with uterine prolapse (procidentia). There are few procedures that seek to correct the condition while preserving vaginal function. Among them are (1) vaginal approach for sacrospinous fixation, (2) abdominal sling procedures, and (3) abdominal and laparoscopic approaches for promontorial fixation. We are presenting a technical report of a modified sling procedure done via laparoscopy. This technique achieves the functional vaginal reconstruction and avoids the potentially dangerous bleeding associated with the sacral fixation. It has also been our experience that the sacrospinous fixation technique affords limited visual exposure, and henceforth the laparoscopic vaginal sling procedure may be a better alternative.
