Approximately 11% of women have undergone surgery for a genital prolapse by the age of 80 and these procedures are now among the most common and frequent operations in females after hysterectomy and c-section. As life expectancy increases and as patients demand a higher quality of life, the number of patients (and surgeons) concerned with this issue is growing. Many of the common techniques for prolapse repair are unchanged since the end of the 19th century when most of the techniques were established. If the 80s and 90s were the years of the laparoscopic surgery revolution, the new millennium has started with the urogynaecologic surgery revolution, but there is a difference. While laparoscopic surgery was trying to mimic the same techniques as traditional surgery through a new approach, the new prolapse surgery is trying to modify dramatically the traditional techniques through the same incision.
