The aim was to evaluated anatomical and symptom specific outcome measures of prolapse repair with PROLIFT ® (Gynecare). In this longitudinal prospective observational study we collected data on a total of 85 women with pelvic organ prolapse stage 2 or more. Objective success rate was 85.9% at 6 months respectively. Patients required a blood more 500 ml - 7,1% and need transfusion. The mesh erosion rate or the displacement of the mesh were 3,5%. Vaginal surgery with prolift mesh® is an effective and safe procedure to correct pelvic organ prolapse over one year follow up.
