Laser Posterior Repair
The posterior vaginal wall is opened with the laser with minimal blood loss and pain. The rectovaginal septum is defined. The fascia is then plicated with delayed absorbable sutures. Use of the laser for dissection opens out the planes with minimal tissue trauma thereby promoting faster healing.
Laser Posterior Repair with Mesh
The Holmium Yag laser can be combined with Mesh for repair of the posterior vaginal wall. The fascial weaking can be repaired with sutures as in the above technique or needs bolstering when it is very weak. In fact there is a lot of data to say that mesh repair is better than no mesh in the case of the posterior vagina.
