Materials and methods: The study included 13 patients operated from September 2000 until April 2011. The patients were operated for the agenesis of the uterus and vagina by laparoscopic assisted neoplastic of vagina with gradual retraction of the special "olive" into the retrovesical space.

The length of the vagina, after removing the olive, was 8 to 10 cm. During examination, 2 to 4 months later, the length of the neovagina varied from 8 to 10 cm. During later follow-up controls, 11 patients reported regular sexual intercourse with which they were satisfied.
