Transvaginal mesh implant procedures. Use them or not?
Treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can be surgical. The vaginal approach is a shorter procedure than the abdominal approach,
with quicker resumption of activity for the patient. Currently, pelvic surgeons face a choice of using transvaginalmesh or classical
techniques to treat this pathology. The goal of this review is to present some of the main transvaginalmesh implant procedures
recommendations from the international medical societies in urogynecology and their appropriate uses.
The success and failure of each approach needs to be assessed in the context of individual patients, their circumstances, and the
surgeon’s ability to use the approach.Author(s): Gisele VissociMarquini
