Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

The investigators planned to measure the effectiveness of laparoscopic pectopexy in apical prolapse and whether the addition of sacrouterine ligaments plication to pectopexy increases the effectiveness of pectopexy operation. Investigators planned to measure patients' quality of life using the female sexual function scale test 3, 6 and 12 months after the surgery and to determine how the operation affects the quality of sexual life.

Arms and Interventions

ArmIntervention/Treatment
Active Comparator: pectopexy group

this group will only have pectopexy operation

Procedure: pectopexy operation
Vaginal cuff or uterine cervix will be attached to iliopectineal ligament with polypropylene mesh on both sides.

Active Comparator: Pectopexy and uterosacral ligaments plication group

this group will have pectopexy operation with bilateral uterosacral ligaments plication

Procedure: pectopexy operation
Vaginal cuff or uterine cervix will be attached to iliopectineal ligament with polypropylene mesh on both sides.

Procedure: uterosacral ligaments plication operation.
At least 2/3 of the sacrouterine ligaments will be shortened with helical sutures, starting from the cervix and so douglas will be partially obliterated.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. questionnaire of lower urinary tract symptoms [changes in symptoms for each title at the preoperative day 1 and postoperative day 3 period]

    the questionaire examines these titles by scoring from one to ten points: sudden feeling of ürination sudden feeling of urination with incontinence Frequent urination Difficulty of starting the urination Abnormal discharge of urine nocturia dyspareunia Stress urinary incontinence dysuria constipation

  2. evaluation of sexual function with Women's Sexual Function Index [changes at the preoperative day 1 and postoperative day 40 period]

    Women's Sexual Function Index is a questionnaire about sexual functions of the women. the index definex sexual functions with some questions and scorings.

  3. Stage of apical compartment defect according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP-Q) classification [changes in the stage of apical compartment defect at the preoperative day 1 and postoperative day 3 period according to POP-Q clasification]

    Stage of apical compartment defect according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP-Q) classification

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. evaluation of sexual function with Women's Sexual Function Index [changes at 3,6 and 12. month after surgery]

    Women's Sexual Function Index is a questionnaire about sexual functions of the women. the index definex sexual functions with some questions and scorings.

  2. Stage of apical compartment defect according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP-Q) classification [changes at 3,6 and 12. month after surgery]

    Stage of apical compartment defect according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP-Q) classification

  3. questionnaire of lower urinary tract symptoms [changes in symptoms for each title at 3,6 and 12. month after surgery]

    the questionaire examines these titles by scoring from one to ten points: sudden feeling of ürination sudden feeling of urination with incontinence Frequent urination Difficulty of starting the urination Abnormal discharge of urine nocturia dyspareunia Stress urinary incontinence dysuria constipation
