Sacrocolpopexy Versus Vaginal Mesh Procedure for Pelvic Prolapse

2014-07-23 21:09:40 | BioPortfolio


Pelvic prolapse is one of the most frequent pathology in Gynecology. Recurrency of the prolapse after primary surgery is relatively high, 15-30%. Sacrocolpopexy has showed to be effective but it requires a long learning curves and is more aggressive. New meshes techniques seem to be effective, as well, with less learning curve but they are expensive and there are no randomize studies published.

The investigators aim is to compare both techniques in terms of: anatomical and functional efficacy, cost, operating time and complications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.

The uptake of substances from the VAGINA via the vaginal epithelium/mucosa.

Collection of pooled secretions of the posterior vaginal fornix for cytologic examination.
