Laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomy--how is it done technically?

Difficult: This is a difficult one to put into a message, but typically you place 2 to 3 laparoscopic prots, then you ligate and divide the round ligament. Take down the bladder flap surgically. Then separate the ovaries from the uterus. Continue ligating and dividing down to the level of the uterosacral ligaments. Then proceed vaginally. Enter into the anterior and poste.

I've had a bladder sling and hysterectomy 8 years ago.  now i think i have a vaginal vault prolapse with a rectocele…what can be done?
