      Sacrocolpopexy (SCP) is the suspension of the vaginal vault to the sacrum. A synthetic mesh is usually used which is fixed to the vaginal vault and to the anterior longitudinal ligament of the sacrum opposite S1 – S2. The mesh is usually placed retroperitoneally and the procedure is done abdominally by laparotomy or laparoscopy.
