Novel method to demarcate bladder dissection during posthysterectomy sacrocolpopexy

Author and Disclosure Information

Brought to you by the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons. This video demonstrates a novel surgical technique that simplifies vesicovaginal dissection during posthysterectomy sacrocolpopexy. The surgeons demonstrate use of an 18 French Foley catheter and a rigid catheter guide, commonly used during midurethral sling placement, on multiple intraoperative patients. The bladder demarcator clearly identifies the bladder edge during dissection without limiting visibility. This easy, fast, new, and safe technique aids in identification of the bladder edge at the time of posthysterectomy sacrocolpopexy, which could help reduce bladder injury.
