Transvaginal mesh for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is more controversial than ever. The largest randomized trial yet suggests transvaginal mesh or grafts are of no benefit in primary POP repair. Furthe...
As reconstructive pelvic surgeons sought to reduce anatomical and symptomatic recurrence of transvaginal prolapse, the concept of incorporating an augmenting material was adopted. With this idea, simi...
[Articles] Mesh, graft, or standard repair for women having primary transvaginal anterior or posterior compartment prolapse surgery: two parallel-group, multicentre, randomised, controlled trials (PROSPECT)
Augmentation of a vaginal repair with mesh or graft material did not improve women's outcomes in terms of effectiveness, quality of life, adverse effects, or any other outcome in the short term, but m...
A synthetic mesh commonly used to treat a form of urinary incontinence as well as the weakening of the female pelvis's walls can lead to complications that increase in frequency with the amount of mes...
Our results support the use of mesh procedures for incontinence, although further research on longer term outcomes would be beneficial. Mesh procedures for anterior and posterior compartment prolapse ...
To the Editor In their observational study, Dr Kokotovic and colleagues suggested that the benefits of mesh for abdominal wall incisional hernia repair compared with repair without mesh were offset in...
