Vaginal vault prolapse is when the walls of the vagina fall in on themselves. This can happen after the uterus has been removed. The goal of surgery is to repair the problem and relieve your symptoms.
A vaginal vault suspension may be used to correct vaginal vault prolapse. This type of surgery can be done through the vagina or the abdomen. The vagina is attached to strong tissue in the pelvis or to the sacrum (a bone at the base of the spine that forms the back of the pelvis).
During surgery, the doctor reaches your pelvic organs through the vagina or the abdomen. An incision may be made in the vaginal wall. If incisions are made on the abdomen (lower belly), they can be vertical (up and down) or transverse (across).
