Minchnev Technique for a Prolapsed Vagina.
The principle of the Minchnev technique is to anchor the roof of the vagina bilaterally and permanently to the sacrosciatic ligament. In this illustration a shaft with a toggle bolt and washer is used. Commercially available devices, known as Johnson buttons are placed in the same location and consists of two 7 cm discs and a shaft. The shaft with one disc at the end is pushed up from within the vagina, after which the second disc is placed externally like a washer on the shaft. The second disk is kept in place with a cotter pin.
