Overview

This text/DVD package is a step-by-step, thoroughly illustrated guide to state-of-the-art techniques in vaginal surgery. The book details the latest techniques and technologies for operating through the vagina, documents the evidence supporting the vaginal approach to most hysterectomies, and describes vaginal reconstructive surgeries for correcting many anatomic defects that cause patient problems.

Opening sections review pelvic anatomy and discuss tools for vaginal surgery, including antibiotic prophylaxis. Subsequent sections focus on specific surgeries, including hysterectomies, reconstruction of the vagina, and techniques for treating urinary incontinence, colorectal problems, and fistulas. The final section discusses recognition and management of intraoperative and postoperative complications.

A bound-in DVD contains digital videos of vaginal hysterectomy, repair of the anterior vaginal segment, site-specific colpocleisis, and total procendentia.
