  Purpose
The investigators scientific aims are to determine the benefits associated with the use of robotic assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy surgery on women with prolapse, to define how the benefits impact the patient, physician and the institution, and to determine the complications associated with the use of the robot. This will be a prospective cohort following 100 patients for a 24 month period.

Condition Intervention
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Procedure: Device- Robotic sacral colpopexy

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Robotic Assisted Sacral Colpopexy : A Prospective Study Assessing Subjective and Objective Outcomes With Learning Curves in the Development of a New Pelvic Floor Robotics Program

Further study details as provided by Shawn A Menefee, MD, Kaiser Permanente:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Learning curve of robotic sacral colpopexy [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    To assess learning curve during implementation of a new pelvic floor robotic program which will assess surgical time (total and specific essential portions), simulator training and surgeon, observational surgeon skills by surgeon, assistant and blinded assessor


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Subjective outcomes for robotic sacral colpopexy [ Time Frame: Two years ]
    Subjective outcomes for robotic sacral colpopexy for prolapse and incontinence symptoms and sexual function using validated measures (PFDI-20), (PISQ-12)

  • Adverse events for robotic sacral colpopexy [ Time Frame: Two years ]
    Adverse events for robotic sacral colpopexy including estimated blood loss, GU and GI injury, wound infection and mesh erosion

  • Objective outcomes measures associated with robotic sacral colpopexy [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    To assess prolapse outcomes using POP-Q assessment of postoperative support at 12 and 24 months


Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: February 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Robotic sacral colpopexy
To assess subjects with stage 2 pelvic organ prolapse undergoing robotic sacral colpopex
Procedure: Device- Robotic sacral colpopexy
To assess robotic sacral colpopexy for female patients with stage 2 pelvic organ prolapse
Other Name: Robotic Laparoscopic Sacral Colpopexy

Detailed Description:

The investigators scientific aims are to determine the benefits associated with the use of robotic assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy surgery on women with prolapse, to define how the benefits impact the patient, physician and the institution, and to determine the complications associated with the use of the robot. This will be a prospective cohort following 100 patients for a 24 month period.

The investigators primary outcomes will be:

  • Surgical time: Key portion of procedure will be assessed along with total time for completion
  • Learning curve: Will be assessed using surgical times, VAS of camera skills, surgical skills involving tissue handling and movements and overall performance by surgeon, assistant and blind reviewer
  • Length of hospitalization: measured by days in hopsital

The investigators secondary outcomes will be:

  • Pre-operative and postoperative Pelvic Organ Prolapse-Quantification (POP-Q) at 6 week, 6, 12, and 24 months.
  • Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory-Short Form 20 Questionnaire (PFDI-20)
  • Mesh erosion,
  • Estimated blood loss,
  • Complications (bowel or bladder injury) and,
  • Wound infection,
  • Patient Global Impressions of Improvement
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12).
