Abstract

Objective: We report a rare case of vaginal cuff dehiscence with small bowel evisceration at 7 months post robotic-staging surgery. Case Report: A 41-year-old woman was sent to the emergency room with sudden onset of abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, and vaginal protruding mass after sexual activity. She had a history of synchronous uterine and ovarian cancer treated with robotic-staging surgery 7 months before. Then she received six courses of postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy, and the last chemotherapy ended 1 month ago. At the operation room, some small bowel loops were noted in the vaginal tip with cuff dehiscence and bleeding. After repositioning of the small bowel, a 2.5-cm vaginal cuff dehiscence was repaired transvaginally. The patient recovered well, and is free of disease and has normal sexual activity 2 months after repairs. Conclusion: Unusual delayed-type vaginal cuff dehiscence hints the possibility that a combination of robotic surgery and postoperative chemotherapy might result in delayed healing of the vaginal cuff.
