Laparoscopic creation of a neovagina in a woman with a kidney transplant

Luigi Fedele, Stefano Bianchi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The successful use of Vecchietti's technique for creating a neovagina in a case of Rokitansky syndrome with an associated transplanted kidney is reported. The technique is performed by means of a laparoscopic approach, adapted to the special anatomical situation, in order to avoid renal injuries. The accomplishment of a normally functioning neovagina, with no intra-operative or post-operative complications, proves that this technique can also be applied satisfactorily to this type of patient.
