Minimally invasive Fothergill -Manchester operation with connective
Our minimally invasive Fothergill-Manchester technique aims to decrease
blood loss and surgical trauma and to preserve function by1. Vaginal
conservation. 2. Cardinal (CL) and uterosacral (USL) ligaments plicated,
not severed. 3. Direct suture of vagina to cervix without Sturmdorf
sutures after cervical amputation. 4. Use of No2 polyester sutures to
create new collagen to reinforce the plicated ligaments.
