Objectives: To evaluate whether the use of single incision un-anchored small mesh implants is feasible, safe and effective for women with moderate pelvic organ prolapse.
Design: Patients diagnosed with moderate pelvic organ prolapse were enrolled to undergo a single incision un-anchored mesh operation. Follow-up was 4 to 23 months. The outcome measures for this study were the operative safety and post-operative pain, adverse effects and anatomical as well as functional cure.
Setting: The operations were performed under general anesthesia according with the reported surgical techniques at university and private hospitals.
Eligibility criteria: female patients with moderate pelvic organ prolapse Outcome measures: intra operative safety and surgical complications, post operative complications and objective as well as subjective cure rates

Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
Incision into the side of the abdomen between the ribs and pelvis.
Enzymes that catalyze the endonucleolytic cleavage of single-stranded regions of DNA or RNA molecules while leaving the double-stranded regions intact. They are particularly useful in the laboratory for producing "blunt-ended" DNA molecules from DNA with single-stranded ends and for sensitive GENETIC TECHNIQUES such as NUCLEASE PROTECTION ASSAYS that involve the detection of single-stranded DNA and RNA.

The regular and simultaneous occurrence in a single interbreeding population of two or more discontinuous genotypes. The concept includes differences in genotypes ranging in size from a single nucleotide site (POLYMORPHISM, SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE) to large nucleotide sequences visible at a chromosomal level.
