Objective: To show how uterine prolapsus in a patient with ureteral kinking could be safely managed

with a laparoscopic pectopexy.

Design: Stepwise demonstration of the technique with narrated video footage.

Setting: Anatomical support of the uterus is provided primarily by the pelvic diaphragm and then

by the cardinal and sacrouterine ligaments . Compression of the ureters due to uterine prolapse,

and bilateral hydronephrosis is not a common clinical condition . Uterus-sparing procedures aims to

correct apical prolapse by attaching the lower uterus or cervix to a support structure [1]. Advantages

of uterus-sparing prolapse correction techniques are a shorter operative time and less blood loss, but

other advantages remains unproven. Laparoscopic pectopexy is an effective and alternative procedure

for women with pelvic organ prolapse. This promosing surgical technique cold be an alternative

to sacrocolpopexy procedure [2]. In this case report, we present the successful management of

laparoscopic pectopexy in a woman with ureteral kinking and hydronephrosis due to uterine prolapse.

Interventions: Laparoscopic approach to an advanced pelvic organ prolapse with several key

strategies to maintain anatomic correction:

1. Suspension of cervix uteri to pectineal ligament

2. Vaginal evaluation of adequacy of the pectopexy

3. Correction of ureteral kinking

Conclusion: Advanced pelvic organ and bladder could be managed with laparoscopic conservative surgery.
