Abstract

In this technique of peritoneal neo-vaginoplasty, the recto-vesical space is dissected through the vulva under synchronous laparoscopic monitoring. Then the cranial limit of the pelvic peritoneum is incised circumferentially by laparoscopic approach and the two circular edges sutured sequentially. The isolated pelvic peritoneal sleeve is opened inferiorly and sutured to introital mucosal flaps.
