Abstract

A neovagina was created by a laparoscopic modification of Vecchietti's operation in two women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome. A plastic olive was applied to the vaginal dimple and pulled upward by two threads passed through the potential neovaginal space at laparoscopy, without the need for laparotomy or dissection of the vesicorectal space. In both cases we obtained very good results in anatomic and sexual functional terms.
