A 44-year-old female with a history of a salpingectomy and hysterectomy presented with colonic inertia, refractory to medical management, with a concomitant rectocele and rectal and vaginal prolapse. The patient underwent a laparoscopic total colectomy and rectopexy combined with sacrocolpopexy. This procedure entails mobilization and resection of the colon with ileorectal anastomosis and circumferential rectal dissection with mesh suspension of the vaginal apex to the sacrum, incorporating the lateral rectal peritoneum. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 6.
