Abstract

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.
