Title

Rouhier's colpocleisis with concomitant vaginal hysterectomy: an instructive video for female pelvic surgeons

Authors

Abstract The treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in elderly women can be challenging. The vaginal operation known as colpocleisis, the total occlusion of the urogenital hiatus, with concomitant hysterectomy was described by Rouhier and represents a safe, time-saving, and reproducible procedure in the case of POP associated with uterine pathological conditions. It is suitable for elderly women who do not require preservation of coital function. The objective of this video is to provide anatomical illustrations and a precise description of the surgical steps.
