Standardization means: implementing guidelines or measurements in order to obtain solutions to a disorganized system. Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is a long and complete surgical procedure that requires good knowledge of the anatomy and of the surgical technique, as well as advanced suturing skills. Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is also the gold standard procedure for POP repair, and its standardization is justified by its difficulty. This video demonstrates the standard technique for laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy with sub-total hysterectomy. It is called “the six-point technique” due to the six stitches used to fix the meshes.
