Abstract

BACKGROUND: No consensus exists regarding the management of recurrent pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The aim of this study was to evaluate robot-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for recurrent pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and to investigate postoperative outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a single-center retrospective study including 10 consecutive patients who underwent a robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy for symptomatic POP recurrence from February 2017 to December 2019. Recurrence rates and patient satisfaction, measured by the Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire (PFIQ-7) were recorded. RESULTS: Median age was 57 years (IQR: 54-67). No intraoperative complications were reported. The median hospital stay after surgery was 2 nights (IQR: 1-4). Two patients (20%) experienced early recurrence: at 1 month for one and at 4.5 months for the other. The median follow-up for the remaining eight patients was 18 months (IQR: 12-23). Among the recurrence-free patients, the median PFIQ-7 score was 11.4 at 12 months. CONCLUSIONS: Robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy is feasible and safe for the management of POP recurrence, with a high patient satisfaction.
