Lateral defect cystoceles, caused by attenuation or tearing of the arcus tendineus fascia pelvis (ATFP) were corrected by re-approximating the pubocervical fascia to the ATFP.
Her anterior wall prolapse and paravaginal defects were then addressed using interrupted placement of 2-0 nonabsorbable multifilament sutures for a bilateral paravaginal defect repair, which secured the pubocervical fascia back to the arcus tendineus fascia pelvis bilaterally with the intent to restore her anterior anatomy prior to the Burch urethropexy.
The true pubocervical fascia extends from the pubic bone anteriorly and laterally to the arcus tendineus fascia pelvis. Its proximal posterior edge is attached to the pericervical ring.
The Gynecare Prosima Pelvic Floor Repair System (Ethicon) is the newest kit on the market, and via anterior compartment dissection to the ischial spines, it is placed up against the arcus tendineus fascia pelvis rather than anchoring into it.
