Mullerian anomalies are of many types, and it is very difficult to classify them in a simple method and plan reconstructive surgery. The aims, objective and the reconstructive surgical approach varies according to the level of vaginal agenesis as seen in our experience of management of 11 cases. The difficulties in the perception and interpretation of the surgical anatomy on magnetic resonance imaging can be minimized by placing a soft vaginal mold inside the lower developed vaginal segment in cases with transverse vaginal septum.


Retrospective observational study.


All the operated 10 adult patients showed good created vaginal space which helped in creating good bonding in between the couples to maintain the integrity of marriage. Better successful reconstructive surgical planning by placing a soft vaginal mould in the vagina during MRI scan helps in understanding the level of septum in our single operated case of transverse vaginal septum and given excellent postoperative result.


The impact of surgery on family life and sexual profile of the patient postsurgery on long-term has been mentioned on rare occasion. The preoperative counseling of the couples helps in better postoperative outcome in terms of psychological and sexual satisfaction of the partners and in the treatment of primary amenorrhea and infertility.
