The vaginal approach to pelvic organ prolapse repair has been a mainstay of surgical therapy since the beginning of modern gynecologic surgery. In this article, the major vaginal procedures are reviewed with emphasis on techniques of pelvic reconstruction. Vaginal hysterectomy, apical suspension, repair of the anterior and posterior compartments, and perineal repair are covered in detail.
