Background: Conservative surgeries such as sling procedures are gaining popularity for pelvic organ prolapse. The technique of this sling surgery has changed along with the materials used for it. So, this case series was planned to find out the usefulness of cotton (umbilical) tape in this surgery as a sling for pelvic organ prolapse. Methods: This study is a case series carried out in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Research Institute, Puducherry, India in the period between 2010 and 2019. Intervention: Use of cotton umbilical tape [Ethicon Umbilical Sterile Cotton Tape (W276)] as a sling for conservative surgery for prolapse. Outcome measured: Patient satisfaction, postoperative complication, and recurrence. Result: A total of 76 patients were analyzed; 75 women had 98.7% satisfaction. One patient had sinus formation and one patient had a recurrence. Conclusion: Cotton umbilical tape can be used as an alternative to commonly used mersilene tape for sling procedures in a resource-constrained setting.
