Uterovaginal prolapse, vaginal vault prolapse, and rectal prolapse are pelvic floor support problems that have been traditionally addressed through abdominal, vaginal or perineal approaches. Over the past decade, minimally invasive approaches to these procedures have been reported and refined. We discuss both laparoscopic and robotic techniques for repair of uterovaginal prolapse, vaginal vault prolapse, and rectal prolapse. In addition, we summarize currently available success and complication data associated with each technique.
