This article reviews clinical trials of surgery for the repair of apical vaginal prolapse. The procedures include those from the abdominal, laparoscopic and transvaginal approach. When considering new surgical devices or procedures, it is essential to be aware of clinical data. The use of tension-free tape devices for apical support is promising, but a large trial is needed to demonstrate its efficacy and safety.
