Abstract
Vaginal agenesis is rare gynecologic condition, and the most common etiology is Mayer-Rokitansky-Kster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, characterized by the absence of uterus and vagina and presence of normal ovaries and tubes. In such patients, the evaluation for associated malformations as well as careful non-surgical and surgical approach are essential. The neovaginoplasty is an important issue for these patients in regard of functional and psychological standpoint. There are many options available for creation of neovagina. We report six cases of laparoscopic assisted neovaginoplasty using pelvic peritoneal flap.
