It is not the purpose of this short paper to bring forth a new method for the treatment of uterine prolapse, nor is it my intention to enter into a detailed discussion of the technic of the various operations now in vogue. I feel that much has been said and written on the subject. To me it seems that the entire subject of pelvic hernia has in the past been viewed from the standpoint of repair only. The inventive powers of the gynecologist have been heretofore directed toward the development of a newer and better technic for the construction and their replacement of tissues and organs in the proper places. True, this resulted in the development of one of the most ideal operations, and one which may be performed in the case of the largest percentage of patients suffering from uterine prolapse, namely, "the vaginal fixation or interposition operation."
