Abstract

Aim: To examine use of Anterior -Apical mesh repair system for anterior prolapse ≥stage3 in an ambulatory setting.

Methods: This is a prospective case series of 111 women at our centre, who underwent an anterior and apical repair with mesh (graft augmented repair) over a consecutive 24 month period.

Results: We found a high objective (68.5%) and subjective (87.6%) success rate, with a mesh extrusion rate of only 3.8%. Most cases could be done in a day surgery setting (93.4%).

Conclusion: Anterior-Apical mesh repair system has the potential to be used in an ambulatory day surgery setting as demonstrated in our study.
