Abstract

BACKGROUND: Colpopoiesis using the sigmoid colon may be used in treatment of patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome. Prolapse of a sigmoid neovagina is rare and its treatment is not yet standardized.

CASES: Two patients developed severe prolapse of a neovagina derived from the sigmoid colon. One patient underwent resection of the redundant sigmoid and an abdominal suspension procedure; however, the prolapse has recurred. The other patient was treated by removal of the entire sigmoid artificial vagina. An alternative neovagina was reconstructed with a pudendal thigh flap. She has no signs of recurrent prolapse and is satisfied with sexual intercourse.

CONCLUSION: Replacement therapy by a connected skin graft may be an excellent optional method as a radical treatment for prolapse of a sigmoid neovagina.
