Dual-Force Balloon Vaginoplasty for Lower Vaginal Aplasia

Video Author: Ali M. El Saman, MD, and Dina A. El Saman, MS
Created on: 04.06.2017

The video describes the instrumentation and technical points for treatment of segmental vaginal aplasia with upper hematocolpos. A balloon catheter was prepared and inserted into the distended vaginal pouch to pull it down against a Teflon olive placed at vaginal dimple. Hysteroscopy was used to accelerate wash out of the retained blood and to confirm appropriate catheter placement. See the related article by El Saman et al (May 2017 issue). Video created by Ali M.

This video shows details of a fetal tracheal occlusion procedure in a fetus with severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The first part demonstrates the ultrasound directed placement of a 10F port through the maternal abdominal wall into the uterus. The port is seen entering just above the nose of the fetus. The second part shows the view through the fetoscope and demonstrates the progression from finding the lips, moving into the mouth over the tongue, navigating the larynx, identifying the esophagus, identifying the vocal cords, entering the trachea and finally placing the balloon above the carina to occlude the trachea.

Anterior colpotomy is one of the most difficult procedural steps to master during vaginal hysterectomy, and may be a major obstacle to more widespread use of the vaginal approach. Precise knowledge of surgical anatomy is essential for safe and proficient performance of this important step. The objectives of this video are to outline the anatomy of the vesicocervical space, demonstrate a dissection technique of anterior colpotomy, and present our results on the average distance from the cervico-vaginal junction to the anterior peritoneal reflection for vaginal hysterectomy.

This test is based on an immunoassay for alpha-fetoprotein embedded in a sanitary pad. The leaking fluid is absorbed into the sampling region and spreads by capillary action along the immunoassay test strip. If both control and test bars appear, the assay is interpreted as positive for amniotic fluid leakage. If only the control bar is visible, the assay is interpreted as negative for amniotic fluid leakage, and therefore, the leaking fluid might be urine or semen.

This animated video depicts the method of insertion and deployment of the vacuum-induced uterine tamponade device for the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage secondary to an atonic, distended uterus. The device is inserted into the uterus and the occlusion balloon is insufflated with saline to create a seal at the level of the external cervical opening. After securing the device to the patient's inner thigh, vacuum is applied, collapsing the uterus as the blood is evacuated. The device is removed after one hour.

The technique for minilaparoscopic single site hysterectomy is here shown. A uterine manipulator is placed transvaginally and two 3-mm trocars are inserted at the umbilical level. Standard steps for total laparoscopic hysterectomy are followed. The entire operation is accomplished using only reusable instruments and all the uterine vascular pedicles are coagulated using 3-mm bipolar coagulation. Colpotomy is performed using monopolar cautery and the specimen is extracted through the vagina. The cuff is sutured transvaginally. The operation is terminated leaving only a very small umbilical incision. See the related article by Uccella et al (July 2015 issue).

The specimen is placed into the glove within the abdomen. Glove opening and thumb are exteriorized through the umbilical and left lower incisions, respectively. The trocar and optic are inserted into the glove, which is then insufflated. The thumb tip is cut, and a power morcellator is inserted through this finger. The morcellation is accomplished within the glove. The thumb tip is closed, and the glove, containing residuals, is removed through the umbilical incision. Thus, the risks of bag piercing and leakage during contained power morcellation are eliminated. See the related article by Akdemir et al (May 2015 issue).
