WS1 | Native tissue repair of POP: extreme boundaries and functional outcomes.
A. Padoa, M. Serati, M. Espuña-Pons, A. Braga
POP is a common condition that in many cases requires surgical repair. After numerous warnings against the use of vaginal mesh in POP surgery, native tissue procedures are the most commonly performed interventions for the treatment of POP. Indeed, certain surgical techniques which had been nearly abandoned in the last two decades, , are now considered suitable in selected cases. The purpose of this workshop is:
- To present an in-depth discussion about safety and efficacy of controversial native tissue approaches.
- To present updated evidence on crucial functional outcomes of native tissue repair of POP.

WS5 | Robotic pelvic reconstructive surgery: a new trend or a craze ?
M. Cervigni, B. O' Reilly, M. Neuman,T. Simoncini
Robotic surgery has taken on an increasingly important role in the surgical treatment of various medical specialties in recent years. This new technological reality, after a consolidated confirmation in the field of oncological surgery, has been suggested also in the field of reconstructive surgery and in particular of Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). This WS therefore intends to introduce both the new generations of reconstructive surgeons of the female pelvis and already experienced laparoscopists into the world of robotic surgery.
