Prosthesis was first used to treat cystocele by abdominal surgery. In 1996, for the first time, a prosthesis was used by vaginal way with sutures fixation.1 Petros and Ulstem invented tension-free suspension concept in 1993 with retropubic tape2,3 and after that they developed the transgluteal posterior tape.4 The transobturator tape was published to treat incontinence in 2001 with an evocation to use transobturator route to treat cystocele. The first publication of mesh repair with transobturator arms was in 2003.
