Disorders of the posterior pelvic floor are common. Their care is complex because of the diversity of symptoms and the frequency of
their association. In the past decades, ventral rectopexy has known an important development due to the contribution of laparoscopy.
This technical, first used in the treatment of rectal prolapse is now extended to treat rectocele. The purpose of this study was to report the
experience of the ventral rectopexy for the treatment of rectocele only with or without an intussuception and to evaluate the anatomical
correction and the functional outcome. D'Hoore were selected. This technical described by D'Hoore and Penninckx allows minimal rectum mobilization. The rectovaginal
septum is opened without dissection of the lateral and posterior surfaces of the rectum. One prosthesis is placed on the ventral position
of the rectum and anchored by one or two points to the promontory without traction.
