Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the surgical outcome and the anatomic and sexual function in 10 women with Rokitansky syndrome who underwent the laparoscopic Vecchietti procedure at our center. Design: Retrospective analysis. Methods: Data were analyzed on the basis of short-term and long-term surgical outcome and sexual function. All patients underwent clinical follow-up at 1, 2, and 6 months after surgery. Measurements and Main Results: In all 10 patients, the procedure produced anatomic and functional success. Conclusion: The laparoscopic Vecchietti technique is safe, simple, and effective for treatment of vaginal agenesis. Results are comparable to those of all European studies, and the procedure should gain more popularity in North America.
