Study Objective: To show the safety and feasibility of laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy for treating uterine prolapse. Design: An educational video to explain the laparoscopic steps of this procedure by focusing on the main anatomic landmarks and on tips and tricks to avoid complications. Setting: A tertiary care university hospital. Interventions: Laparoscopic sacropexy with uterus preservation for grade 3 apical defect. Conclusion: This video shows a stepwise approach to laparoscopic sacrohysteropexy demonstrating its feasibility and safety. There is a wide choice of surgical procedures and approaches focused on pelvic organ prolapse repair. Since many years, uterine prolapse has been an indication for hysterectomy, regardless of the occurrence of uterine disease and patients’ desires. With the introduction of minimally invasive surgery, the uterine-sparing procedures are being increasingly taken into account, especially in young women . Sacrohysteropexy is a uterus-sparing procedure that allows for a reduction in operating time, intraoperative blood loss, mesh-related complications, and surgical costs . Furthermore, this technique has a high success rate with an objective cure rate of 100% for the apical compartment and 80% for all compartments and does not seem to increase the pelvic organ prolapse recurrence rate . Sacropexy is not a life-threatening procedure, but its main objective is to restore functional anatomy with the primary goal of improvement in patient's quality of life. Moreove, no difference has been found with or without uterus preservation in term of postoperative recurrence rate or ent's quality of life . However, high patient satisfaction has been recently reported; therefore, uterine preservation should be considered during patient's counseling.
