Mesh kits for rectocele

Patrick Lang, Sallie Oliphant, Jason Mizell, Becca Austin, Susan Barr
INTRODUCTION: We present an uncommon complication of vaginally placed synthetic prolapse mesh and demonstrate repair of rectal mesh perforation. METHODS: A 41-year-old was referred with multiple complaints following rectocele repair using a posterior vaginal mesh kit 5 months earlier. In the immediate postoperative period, she experienced severe pain radiating down her right leg, pelvic pain, dyspareunia, dyschezia, diarrhea, and new onset fecal incontinence. Our examination revealed tight, tender mesh arms palpable at the vaginal apex with no evidence of erosion or rectovaginal fistula...

Surgical mesh is a metallic or polymeric screen intended to be implanted to reinforce soft tissue or bone where weakness exists. Surgical mesh has been used since the 1950s to repair abdominal hernias. In the 1970s, gynecologists began using surgical mesh products to indicate the repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and in the 1990s, gynecologists began using surgical mesh for POP. Then the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first surgical mesh product specifically for use in POP. Surgical mesh materials can be divided into several categories...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic organ prolapse may occur in up to 50% of parous women. A variety of urinary, bowel and sexual symptoms may be associated with the prolapse. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of the many different surgeries used in the management of pelvic organ prolapse. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Group Specialised Register, which contains trials identified from the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, MEDLINE In Process and handsearching of journals and conference proceedings, healthcare-related bibliographic databases, handsearched conference proceedings (searched 20 August 2012), and reference lists of relevant articles...

Reports in the literature of high recurrence rates after native tissue repair for pelvic organ prolapse led to the development of alternative techniques, such as those using synthetic mesh. Transvaginal mesh (TVM) delivery systems were implemented in search of better outcomes. Despite reported recurrence as low as 7.1 % after posterior colporrhaphy, mesh kits were developed to correct posterior compartment prolapse. There is a paucity of data to substantiate better results with TVM for rectocele repair. Three randomized controlled trials comparing native tissue repair to synthetic mesh reported posterior compartment outcomes and two of these failed to show a significant difference between groups...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate anatomical, functional outcomes and complications inherent to the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse by implantation of polypropylene mesh, using the Prolift kit. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Single-center observational study of 100 successive patients enrolled in a registry, who underwent Prolift prolapse repair. Data on prior treatments, associated procedures and per- and post-operative complications were collected and the patients were seen after 2, 6 and 12 months...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To estimate the safety and efficacy of performing concurrent anterior and posterior transvaginal mesh surgery using a commercially available kit (Gynecare PROLIFT Pelvic Floor Repair System; Ethicon, Inc., Somerville, NJ) for treatment of advanced urogenital prolapse (stage III or higher, Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification [POP-Q] system staging). DESIGN: Case control series study (Canadian Task Force classification II-2). SETTING: Medical school-affiliated hospital...
