          Abstract

          Vaginal evisceration, although rare, is usually present in postmenopausal women with a history of vaginal surgery and high-grade pelvic floor dysfunction. Operative management is directed toward resecting any compromised bowel, repairing vaginal defect, and correcting the defect in the pelvic floor, which is associated with most cases, either in the same intervention or in a second procedure. Laparoscopy allows for assessment of the viability of the compromised bowel and the vaginal defect suture with advantages common to minimally invasive techniques. We report the first case in the international literature of vaginal evisceration managed by laparoscopy.
