Abstract

After pelvic organ prolapse repair, nearly 30% of women undergo additional surgical intervention for prolapse recurrence (1). Despite this fact, there are few published reports specifically examining prolapse recurrence and its optimal surgical management. Furthermore, the definition of a surgical failure is not always clear, as there are cases in which organ dysfunction may persist, despite a technically sound outcome, whereas some asymptomatic patients may have a recurrent low-grade or-stage prolapse.
