American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 08/12/2011
De Landsheere L et al. – The global reoperation rate after transvaginal Prolift mesh repair was 11.6%, with urinary incontinence surgery being the commonest indication. Rates of mesh complications and prolapse recurrence are relatively low in an experienced team.Methods
- This was a retrospective study of all patients who underwent Prolift mesh repair between January 2005 and January 2009.
- Patient data were obtained from medical records and patients were telephoned to check if they had surgery in other hospitals.
- A total of 600 consecutive patients were identified.
- Out of these, 524 patients (87.3%) were included in the study, with a median follow-up duration of 38 months (range 15-63).
- Global reoperation rate was 11.6%. Indications of intervention were surgery for urinary incontinence (6.9%), mesh-related complications (3.6%) or prolapse recurrence in (3%).
