Introduction: genital prolapse is defined as the descent or displacement of the pelvic organs as a consequence of the failure of support and support structures (1). More than 50% of women in advanced age are affected in their quality of life by this entity and corresponds to 76% of the daily gynecological consultation (2). General Objective: to describe the clinical characteristics of patients with genital prolapse undergoing surgical correction in HUM-Mederi, from 2011 to 2016. Methodology: retrospective descriptive study of women taken to surgical correction of genital prolapse in HUM-Mederi between 2011-2016. A total sample of 282 patients was included in which description of clinical variables was made and the possible association of these for the development of reprolapse. Results: The average age was 64.9 years. The median number of pregnancies and vaginal deliveries was 3. 90.07% of the patients were in the postmenopause. 61.70% had a BMI> 29, 46% had involvement of 3 vaginal compartments and the most frequent degree of prolapse was 3 in 48% of cases. The urinary tract infection was the most frequent complication in 12.06%. A reprolapse rate of 14.5% was found. Conclusion: the clinical behavior of HUM Mederi patients is homogeneous to that reported in the literature. Patients with higher BMI, menopause and higher degree of prolapse the rate of reprolapse was higher.
