Bladder polyps following Avaulta anterior mesh vaginal wall repair.
Summary of "Bladder polyps following Avaulta anterior mesh vaginal wall repair."
We present the case of a postmenopausal woman who developed bladder polyps leading to serious abdominal pain, dysuria with mucus and blood, and urinary incontinence after anterior vaginal wall repair using Avaulta anterior mesh (Bard®). All of these symptoms resolved after mesh removal. This case emphasizes that not all complications of mesh are known.

Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
Discrete tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the COLON. These POLYPS are connected to the wall of the colon either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
An incision of the posterior vaginal wall and a portion of the pudenda which enlarges the vaginal introitus to facilitate delivery and prevent lacerations.
Discrete abnormal tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the DIGESTIVE TRACT or the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Polyps can be spheroidal, hemispheroidal, or irregular mound-shaped structures attached to the MUCOUS MEMBRANE of the lumen wall either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: To estimate the risk of repeat surgery for recurrent prolapse or mesh removal after vaginal mesh versus native tissue repair for anterior vaginal wall prolapse. METHODS: W...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: To compare the efficacy of a collagen-coated polypropylene mesh and anterior colporrhaphy in the treatment of stage 2 or more anterior vaginal wall prolapse. METHODS: Pros...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Assessment of the 2-year outcome of anterior Prolift™ for women with recurrent anterior vaginal wall prolapse. This is a prospective study which was conducted in a terti...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Polypropylene meshes are frequently used in abdominal and vaginal reconstructive surgery. Recently, several authors have claimed that mesh-associated complications may be...
Aim: Modified placement of the Anterior Prolift™ (MODAP) in patients with prolapse of the anterior and middle vaginal compartment is described. It was performed in order to achieve simultaneous tens...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether reenforcement with polypropylen mesh compared with traditional anterior colporrhaphy for anterior vaginal wall prolapse results in fewer r...
Summary: Vaginal prolapse is a well-known disease and is observed in approximately 11% of all postmenopausal women and tending to increase with age. Consequently, many surgical proc...
A RCT study to compare traditional colporrhaphy versus polypropylene mesh in treatment of the anterior vaginal wall prolapse.
Prolapse occurs when pelvic organs drop down and cause a bulging of the tissues. An "anterior wall prolapse" occurs when the front of the vagina loses its support, and the bladder drops d...
This study will evaluate the effect of pessary therapy, with and without Solifenacin (Vesicare), on symptoms of over active bladder and bladder function in women with overactive bladder sy...
