Excision Vaginal Septum

Excision Vaginal Septum

Transverse vaginal septum generally occurs between the upper one-third and lower two-thirds of the vaginal canal. This is additional evidence that the upper one-third of the vagina is of Mullerian origin and that the lower two-thirds of the vagina is embryologically developed via the urogenital sinus. The septum can be either complete or partial. If it is complete, the symptoms of vaginal obstruction occur at the time of menarche, since menstrual blood is entrapped above the septum and has no egress from the vagina. If the septum is partial, it may be discovered on a routine gynecologic examination, or the patient may present with dyspareunia. The operation is performed to remove the transverse vaginal septum without significantly shortening the vaginal canal.
