Laparoscopic Release Of Entrapped Genitofemoral Nerve After Shirodkar’s Sling

Shirodkar’s sling is a surgery performed for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. Occasionally, the genitofemoral nerve, a nerve passing along the side wall of the pelvis, may get entrapped in the tape used for the sling. This causes excruciating pain with difficulty in using that leg. We were referred a woman who had such a complication. Via laparoscopy, we released the nerve from the tape, cut the tape and placed a new tape at a different position to prevent recurrence of the prolapse. The woman recovered completely from her symptoms. This was the first ever reported case of its kind. It was presented at a national conference and is to be published a national journal shortly.
