Disorders of the posterior pelvic floor are common. Their care is complex due to the diversity of symptoms and the frequency of their association.

Ventral rectopexy has known an important development and used in the treatment of rectal prolapse.

The purpose of this study was to report the experience of the ventral rectopexy for the treatment of rectocele and to evaluate the anatomical correction and the functional outcome.

Our study presents very satisfactory results. Indeed, with a long follow-up of 34.3 months, the morbidity is minimal and the anatomical correction with a low recurrence rate is satisfactory. Our overall satisfaction rate is also very good.
