Since 1996, the number of reports in the urologic and gynecologic literature using synthetic and allograph prosthetics to enhance the durability of anterior compartment repairs have increased significantly. Central to the use of these prosthetics is long-term follow-up to demonstrate that their use actually confers a benefit to patients and surgeons alike. This review attempts to catalog those reports and the outcomes, with an emphasis on the cadaveric prolapse repair with sling, which is used by the authors for repair of anterior compartment prolapse with overt or occult genuine stress urinary incontinence.
