To describe first two cases of robotic sacrocolpopexy in the Czech Republic.

Two case reports with literature overview.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacky University in Olomouc.

Case report:
Robotic sacrocolpopexy was performed in two patients of the age 36 and 59 at the department of obstetrics and gynecology in Olomouc in 2009. We describe vaginal prolapse treatment in one case, and supracervical hysterectomy with cervicosacropexy in the other. These two cases are compared with literature overview, including long-term follow-up.

Robotic sacrocolpopexy encompasses all advantages of minimally invasive surgery. Our results, as well as published data show very good long term results of vaginal prolapse treatment using this approach.
