Pt had Robotic assisted total laparascopic hyterectony with bilateral salpingo oopphoorectomies. Pt also underwent sacral colpopexy using mesh. Procedure included Laparascopic anterior and posterior colporrhaphy.
I can't find the code for Laparascopic anterior and posterior colporrhaphy
can you help me with that procedure please

There is no listed code for Laparascopic anterior and posterior colporrhaphy. You will have to use unlisted code 49329, Unlisted laparoscopy procedure, abdomen, peritoneum and omentum.

Can I use 57260 as it did not mentioned as vaginal or abdominal approach???

Code 57260 is for open procedure without using any scope. And there is no unlisted code when scope is inserted through vagina. Hence, by default you will have only option to use code 49329.
