Background: The preservation of the uterus has an important role in the pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery. Objectives: The aim of this study is to assess the long-term anatomical and functional outcomes of abdominal hysterosacropexy. Methods: Prospective study. A series of women who underwent open abdominal hysterosacropexy for high-stage POP with a minimum 75-month follow-up were included. Results: Data on 51 patients were included. Median follow-up was 136.7 months (range 75.8-258 months). Apical prolapse cure rate was 100%. The success rate for anterior and posterior vaginal compartment was 96 and 94% respectively. Urinary and sexual symptoms significantly improved. Ninety-two percentage of the women were "extremely" or "very much improved" with the operation. Conclusion: This study confirms that abdominal hysterosacropexy is a good surgical option with durable results for the management of POP in women who wish to preserve their uterus.
