To compare the modified McIndoe versus Davydov vaginoplasty techniques in terms of complication rates and operative time in patients with vaginal agenesis.

Study design

Quasi experimental.

Place & Duration of study

This study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Bahawal Victoria Hospital Bahawalpur, from January 2005 to December 2016.


A total of 60 patients were included in the study after taking informed consent. They were divided in two groups, A and B, with 30 patients in each. After relevant investigations group A underwent modified McIndoe and group B, Davydov vaginoplasty. Patients were followed up to six months postoperatively. Operative time and complications were noted on a form.


Mean age of the study participants was 16.34±3.27 year. Mean operative time in group A was 28.80±6.53 minutes while in group B 65.93±14.34 minutes. No patients in group A sustained any injury while in group B, 5 (16.66%) patients had perioperative complications (p=0.02). In group B, 2 (6.66%) patients had bladder and 3 (10%) rectal injuries. In follow up period of six months, 1 (3.33%) patient in group A had partial vaginal stenosis (p=0.313). Functional results of both the groups were satisfactory.


Modified McIndoe vaginoplasty is relatively a simple, safe, effective and less time consuming procedure as compared to Davydov vaginoplasty to treat the patients of vaginal agenesis.
