Objective: To analyze and evaluate the technical feasibility, effectiveness and security of the laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy with mesh and helical titanium anchorages for the treatment of vaginal vault prolapse. Method: Between November 2005 and July 2006, five laparoscopic sacrocolpopexies, using this technique, took place in the Gynecology Service of the Clinical Hospital of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, consisting of mesh joined to the sacro promontory with helical titanium anchorages. The age of the patients was between 46 and 65 years, with vaginal parity between 2 and 3. Results: In all patients the surgical technique corrects the defect. There were no interoperating or postoperating complications, with a prompt recovery and reintegration to usual activities. Conclusions: We face a novel, safe and reproducible technique, with the advantages of the laparoscopy, early leave hospital and esthetically optimum
