The term colpocleisis is derived from the ancient Greek term “kolpos,” which refers to a fold in the Greek tunic and “cleisis,” which stands for occlusion or closure. Colpocleisis is the obliterative alternative to reconstructive surgery, offered to women with stage II–IV Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) who are at high risk to surgery and no longer wish to preserve coital function per vagina.
