Moderate shortening of the vagina was observed in two patients and another two required reconstruction of vaginal strictures during long-term follow-up.Laser-skinning colpectomy appears to be a feasible treatment for extended high-risk VaIN3. The procedure avoids the mutilation associated with colpectomy and allows early diagnosis and staging of invasive (...)
