Abstract

Introduction and Objective: Robot-assisted sacral colpopexy (RASC) is a fast growing approach for surgeons treating patients with advanced stage pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Open abdominal sacral colpopexy has been the gold standard for advanced POP but requires longer hospital stays and a much larger incision. The indications, preoperative preparation, operative positioning, and operative steps are detailed, and an accompanying video shows the approach. Methods: RASC can be broken down into 11 steps and the reader will be able to reference the article to the corresponding portion of the video. Results: A total of 119 women underwent RASC between 2009 and 2016. Patients had similar preoperative characteristics. All POP-Q, UDI-6, and quality of life scores improved postoperatively. Apical failure was noted in 0, anterior failure was noted in 7 (average Ba +1.1 cm in failures), and posterior failure was noted in 4 (mean Bp +1.0 cm) patients at 15.6 months' follow-up. A total of 11 suture erosions were noted in five patients requiring excision in the clinic and 2 patients in the operating room. Four suture erosions were managed with observation. Two mesh exposure events were noted. Conclusion: Outcomes for robotic sacral colpopexy are like those of open abdominal sacral colpopexy.
