Objective The aim of the study was to report our preliminary experience of supracervical 2 hysterectomy followed by sacral colpopexy performed with the Percuvance â¢ PSS in terms of feasibility, effectiveness and safety. Study design Between Jan 2017 and Feb 2017 10 patients affected by POP were enrolled in the present study. All patients undergoing supracervical hysterectomy followed by sacral colpo-cervicopexy with the Percuvance â¢ PSS. Results The reported series consisted of 10 patients undergoing supracervical hysterectomy followed by sacral colpopexy with a median age of 63 years (range 55â71 years) and a median BMI (body mass index) of 24 (range 21â26). A median operative time of 123 min (range 103â134 min) and a median estimated blood loss (EBL) of 40 ml (range 20â60 ml) were registered. No conversions to standard laparoscopy or laparotomy were required and no intraoperative complications occurred. At the discharge all patients were completely satisfied with the cosmetic result and postoperative pain control. During 3 months urogynecological follow-up no patient showed surgical anatomic failure (>2 POP-Q stage)and the degree of overall satisfaction of the cosmetic results was confirmed by the surgeon and the patient equally. Conclusions The PSS supracervical hysterectomy plus sacral colpopexy is a feasible and effective approach with good results in terms of operative time, cosmesis, postoperative pain and length of hospitalization.
