ABSTRACT Forty patients with post-hysterectomy vaginal vault prolapse underwent surgery at Lund University Hospital between 1983 and 1991. The standard procedure was an abdominal colposacropexy, using Marlex mesh in 25 cases and Gore-Tex mesh in 15. There were no intraoperative complications. One patient developed a recurrent vault prolapse and one patient developed a draining sinus in the vaginal apex. The duration of follow-up has varied between one and ten years. In 39 of the 40 patients (97%), both subjective and objective improvement has been achieved.
