RECHKEMMER PRIETO, Adolfo. Laparoscopic creation of a neovagina following modified Davydo´s technique in patients with Rokitanski´s syndrome. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.1, pp.33-36. ISSN 1018-130X.

We report an alternative surgical procedure for creating a neovagina in eight patients with agenesis of the uterus and vagina. All patients presented with primary amenorrhea and congenital absence of the uterus and vagina (Rokitanski´s syndrome) and had 18-25 years of age. In brief, a dissection of the bladder-rectal space was performed until reaching the peritoneum that was subsequently pull down with a gripper to attach it to the orifice of the neovagina at the introitus using sutures with vicryl 0. Then, by using laparoscopy, the peritoneum was closed creating the dome of the vagina. A mold of foam cover by a condom was inserted in the neovagina. Hospital stays ranged from 2-5 days, no post-operative complications were observed. Six months after, the pelvic examination showed a vagina of 6-10cm in deep with no granulation tissue. We conclude that creating a neovagina using a laparoscopic assisted procedure followed by a foam mold is efficient and safe.
