(FR) DISPOSITIFS ET METHODES DE RECONSTRUCTION VAGINALE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention concerns grafts and methods of vaginal reconstruction for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. The method of the present invention is a minimally invasive procedure using a vaginal approach and fixed, (reproducible) anatomical landmarks in the pelvis as points of fixation for tension free graft attachment providing anatomical support for the vaginal apex, anterior and/or posterior vaginal walls.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des greffes et des méthodes de reconstruction vaginale pour le traitement de prolapsus d'organe pelvique. La méthode de cette invention constitue une intervention très peu effractive, au moyen d'une approche vaginale et de repères anatomiques (reproductibles), fixes dans le pelvis, constituant des points de fixation pour une attache de greffe exempte de tension qui fournit un support anatomique destiné à l'apex vaginal, aux parois vaginales antérieure et/ou postérieure.
