More on Vecchietti procedure

Pain due to tightening of the traction threads was managed with epidural anaesthesia. Dilators were used for 6 months in combination with liberal application of oestrogen cream to treat oestrogen deficiency and for lubrication. After 3 months the patient started having intercourse. The vaginal size achieved was 7 cm length × 4 cm width. No surgical complications were described, but vaginitis was reported and treated at a follow-up visit.      from
