What is colpocleisis?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 01/28/2021

Colpoclesis is a surgical way to treat uterine prolapse. This intervention consists of joining the anterior and posterior walls of the vagina, preventing them from protruding outward.

This treatment option for uterine prolapse is only recommended for women who are not sexually active, since colpoclesis closes the vaginal canal.

The success rate of colpocleisis is approximately 90-95%, although it will depend on the situation of each woman.
