Abstract

Perineal body descent has been linked to pudendal nerve injury and anorectal disorders, including constipation, rectal pain, and fecal incontinence. Open sacral colpoperineopexy has been described for the treatment of perineal descent. We present a technique for laparoscopic sacral colpoperineopexy and highlight this approach with accompanying video segments.
