Introduction and hypothesis  The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate long-term outcomes of a modified high uterosacral ligament suspension (HUSLS) at vaginal hysterectomy for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Methods  POP was assessed 5 years postoperatively in 42 women who underwent vaginal hysterectomy and HUSLS for POP. Bladder, bowel, sexual function and quality of life (QoL) were evaluated. Results  Preoperatively, 27/42 women had at least BW grade 2 uterine prolapse. At a mean follow-up period of 59.4 months (range: 40–79 months), two women had undergone surgical intervention for vault prolapse, 33 had no vault prolapse and six grade 1 vault prolapse. One woman declined vaginal examination. Twenty women were sexually active and 18 completed the PISQ-31. The mean total score for all domains was 91/125. On QoL assessments high scores were noted in all domains. Conclusions  Modified HUSLS at vaginal hysterectomy is associated with satisfactory long-term objective and subjective outcomes, sexual function and quality of life scores.
