Genital prolapse is a prevalent pelvic disorder inducing hypermobility of organs. Its physiopathology is not well understood as highlighted by the high rate of failure of the surgical treatments. A better definition of the pelvic tissues properties is needed to design more functional prostheses. Image registration is first used to describe the structure of the pelvic system. Experimental characterization is done to have a map of the mechanical properties of pelvic soft tissues and compare healthy and pathologic tissues behaviour. Then a model based on macromolecular approach and histologic composition is proposed.
