PURPOSE: The polypropylene mesh (PPM) is used in many surgical interventions because of its good incorporation and accessibility. However, potential mesh-related complications are common. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) improves the healing of wounds and is inexpensive. Thus, the purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of the PRP-gel coating of a PPM on inflammation, production of collagen, and smooth muscle in the rabbit vagina. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The intervention consisted of a 1...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Polypropylene mesh exposure is uncommon after abdominal sacral colpopexy (ASC), but in case of symptomatic vaginal mesh exposure, surgery is needed. When treating it, care must be taken to completely remove the exposed mesh (EM), saving as much vaginal tissue as possible to avoid a subsequent shortened and narrowed vagina. In this video, we present a minimally invasive technique for treating EM after ASC using endoscopic mesh resection and autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technology...

OBJECTIVES: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common condition in women. The lifetime risk of undergoing surgery to correct POP is 11%, with 30% recurrence rate. Various types of vaginal implants, absorbable and nonabsorbable, that have been introduced in pelvic floor reconstructive surgeries have numerous serious adverse effects. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous product that accelerates tissue healing and regeneration. We hypothesized that autologous PRP will promote human vaginal fibroblast (HVF) attachment to vaginal implants and increase their healing potential...

Rectovaginal fistula (RVF) is an abnormal communication between vagina and anorectum. Most frequent causes are iatrogenic. Often surgery is the therapy of choice. The suggested treatments include trans-anal access or combined trans-anal and vaginal access. We present the case of a woman with complicated iatrogenic fistula treated by a combined trans-anal and vaginal access, interposition of buccal mucosa and opposition of PRP (platelet rich plasma).
