Pelvic organ prolapse (POP), a common and benign condition, is characterized by the descent of one or more aspects of the vagina and uterus. A wide variety of mesh-based surgical techniques have been proved to be effective in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP).

To evaluate the efficacy of a modified laparoscopic lateral suspension with mesh (mLLSM) in patients with apical and anterior pelvic organ prolapse.

Material and methods
All patients diagnosed with apical and anterior pelvic organ prolapse underwent a modified laparoscopic lateral suspension with mesh (mLLSM). Perioperative parameters including surgical time, blood loss and complications were recorded. At the minimal 12-month follow-up, primary outcome measures included both anatomical and functional points. The anatomical cure rate was evaluated using the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Questionnaire (POP-Q) assessment. Patient satisfaction was evaluated using questionnaires.

Mean surgical time was 91.56 ±15.33 min; mean estimated blood loss was 55.42 ±36.73 ml; no intraoperative complications were noted in the perioperative period. After a minimal 12-month follow-up period, rates of anatomical success and subjective satisfaction were 96.33% and 94.50%, respectively. Symptom severity and quality of life also improved significantly.

We found mLLSM to be a safe and effective treatment for patients suffering apical and anterior pelvic organ prolapse. We found mLLSM to result in excellent outcomes and fewer mesh complications, underscoring its potential as an alternative treatment option for the management of apical and anterior pelvic organ prolapse.
