Massive Broad Ligament Hematoma Caused by Spontaneous Uterine Artery Rupture Following Uncomplicated Vaginal Delivery
A 34-year-old woman, gravida 3, para 1, was admitted to our hospital at 40 weeks of gestation with regular active labor. She received uneventful routine antenatal care except for a modified Schirodker operation performed at 15 weeks of gestation. After admission, she delivered a live infant weighing 3880 g after 21 hours of uncomplicated labor and delivery. Her blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) were 110/70 mmHg and 80 beats/min, respectively. Uterine tone was adequate without abnormal postpartum bleeding (estimated vaginal blood loss: 300 mL).

Hamstring Autograft as a Mesh-Alternative for Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Unsatisfactory long-term results with synthetic grafts for anterior crucial ligament (ACL) reconstruction led knee surgeons to switch to more stable, better compatible and longer lasting autografts [1]. As urogynecologists nowadays are confronted with similar challenges regarding synthetic meshes, intellectual cross-fertilization between orthopedics and gynecologists could help solving these problems. Because native tissue repair is less effective in apical prolapse surgery, currently used repairing techniques for pelvic organ prolapse in Europe mostly employ synthetic meshes [2].

Sacrospinofixation of Richter in 8 points: original contribution of the laparoscopic column in the visualization of the sacrospinous ligaments
Although the standard technique is currently based on laparoscopic promontofixation, the standard vaginal technique for the treatment of uterine prolapse is sacrospinofixation according to Richter [1 –3]. Described by Kurt Richter in 1968, this intervention corrects the middle floor and consists of fixing the vaginal dome (after hysterectomy or not) on the sacrospinous ligament(s) [4,5]. The technique includes a wide dissection of the pararectal fossa, using several Breisky's valves, to grip t he sacrospinous ligament under strict visual control.
