Abstract
AIM: The aim of the present study was to assess the safety and efficacy of anterior vaginal wall repair using polypropylene mesh for the correction of anterior vaginal wall prolapse. METHODS: From May 2001 to March 2005, 38 patients with cystoceles or uterine prolapse underwent transvaginal repair with implantation of polypropylene mesh. In all 38 patients anterior vaginal wall repair was done concurrently with other procedures: vaginal hysterectomy, n = 18 (47.4%) and tension-free vaginal tapes n = 22 (57.9%). RESULTS: Preoperatively 26 patients (68.4%) had stage III/IV prolapse on pelvic organ prolapse quantification examination. After mean follow up of 23.4 months, the objective cure rate at 12 and 18 months was 94.5% and 94.3%, respectively. As for complications associated with placement of the polypropylene mesh, no tissue erosion or infection was found. CONCLUSIONS: Transvaginal implantation of polypropylene mesh is an effective and safe technique for the correction of anterior vaginal wall prolapse.
