 Risk Factors of Mesh-Related Complications in Prolapse Surgery Patients Elaborated in Study

A retrospective multicenter study aimed to evaluate intraoperative, early postoperative and mesh-related complications for surgical management of female pelvic organ prolapse (POP) with application of trocar guided transvaginal synthetic mesh. The study included 677 patients from 6 centres.

In the course of the study the patients underwent POP surgery from 2006 to 2010. The patients were operated for symptomatic genital prolapse POP-Q stage 2 to 4. Patients were systematically seen within 1 and 3 months and then evaluated again during the study via phone interview and those who reported complaints during interview were evaluated in the office settings. Quantitative data with normal distribution were analysed via Student test; whereas Fisher exact test was used for the non-parametric criteria.
