BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the perioperative complications and short-term outcomes of patients who underwent sacrocolpopexy using a self-adhesive mesh.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a prospective, monocentric study conducted between October 2019 and December 2020. We included 20 consecutive patients on whom sacrocolpopexy using the Parietex ProGripTM Self-Fixating Mesh (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA) was performed. The patients’ demographics, operative data, perioperative complications, and functional and anatomical outcomes were assessed.
RESULTS: A total of 20 patients were included in this study. The objective cure rate was 95%, and the subjective cure rate was 94.12%. The failure of the surgery was defined as the recurrence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) ≥ grade II.
The preoperative POP quantification classifications were as follows: grade I: 0%; grade II: 70%; grade III: 30%; and grade IV: 0%. There were no mesh-related complications or other intraoperative complications. The postoperative complications included two urinary tract infections, two incisional hernias, and a prolapse recurrence. The mean operative time was 154 ± 37.04 minutes, and the mean hospital stay time was 7 ± 1.12 days.
CONCLUSIONS: The present study found that the use of the Parietex ProGripTM Self-Fixating Mesh in abdominal sacrocolpopexy was not associated with greater rates of complications.
