Abstract

Le fort first described a new method for the cure of prolapsed in 1877. The Le fort partial colpocleisis is an obliterative vaginal procedure that approximates anterior and posterior vaginal walls. This surgery effectively replaces the prolapsed vaginal vaults into abdominal cavity with or without a uterus. It is indicated only in elderly women who have no future desire for sexual intercourse and having other concomitant medical disorders. Normal Pap smear and normal endometrium either by endometrial biopsy or ultrasonography (USG) is recommended before surgery.
