Abstract

Approximately 11% of women will undergo a surgical procedure for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or urinary incontinence by age 80 years. Abdominal sacrocolpopexy has been found in multiple studies to have high long-term success rates for repair of severe vault prolapse. Robotic or laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy offer similar success to an open approach. This article describes the techniques of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy and robotic sacrocolpopexy. The role of hysteropexy for the treatment of POP is also discussed.
