Sacrospinous fixation (hysteropexy) surgery helps restore support to the uterus or vaginal vault in the case of a previous hysterectomy (uterus removal).
It is an operation to treat a prolapsed womb or top of the vagina (in case of a previous hysterectomy). The procedure is performed through an incision in the back wall of the vagina. The top of vagina or the cervix is hitched up to a strong ligament at the back of the pelvis, the Sacrospinous ligament.
The operation is very successful with success rates of about 90% in curing the prolapse.
As with any surgical procedure and general anaesthetic, there is a degree of risk involved. The risks and complications will be discussed by the treating Consultant. Some general surgical risks are:
Most women need 8-12 weeks off work after surgery for prolapse. To prevent your surgery from failing you must avoid any heavy lifting, carrying or any strain on the abdomen for 8 weeks. You should also make sure you drink plenty of water and follow a sensible diet high in fibre to avoid constipation.
