INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: In a retrospective study, the sacrospinous hysteropexy was associated with a shorter recovery time compared to a vaginal hysterectomy with no differences in anatomical outcomes. No randomized trials are performed.

METHODS: Sixty-six women with stage 2-4 uterine descent were randomized for vaginal hysterectomy(31) or sacrospinous hysteropexy(35). Recovery time, anatomical outcomes, functional outcomes, and quality of life were measured.

RESULTS: Length of time to return to work was shorter after a sacrospinous hysteropexy (43 versus 66 days, p = 0.02). The difference in risk for recurrent prolapse stage 2 or more of the apical compartment at 1-year follow-up was 17% (95% confidence interval, 2 to 30) in favor of the vaginal hysterectomy. No differences in quality of life and urogenital symptoms were found.

CONCLUSIONS: The sacrospinous hysteropexy for uterine descent is associated with an earlier recovery time, more recurrent apical prolapses but no differences in functional outcomes, and quality of life.
