The aim of this study is to show the safety and efficacy of the double transobturator approach, a new technique for anterior vaginal wall prolapse, using several different kinds of meshes (synthetic and biological).This is a retrospective study of 74 women treated between 2005 and 2007. The patients underwent a 3, 6 and 12 month follow-up. The anatomical cure rate, defined as grade of prolapse <2, was 79.7%. Fifteen patients had a recurrence, 12 were treated with biological VS meshes and 3 were treated with synthetic meshes. Vaginal erosion was reported in 5 (6.7%) of these patients, two of whom were treated with topic estrogenic therapy, and three of whom with partial excision. These results suggest that this technique is safe and efficacious and that the best meshes to use are synthetic meshes, because they have a lower recurrence rate than biological meshes.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to show the safety and efficacy of the double transobturator approach, a new technique for anterior vaginal wall prolapse, using several different kinds of meshes (synthetic and biological).This is a retrospective study of 74 women treated between 2005 and 2007. The patients underwent a 3, 6 and 12 month follow-up. The anatomical cure rate, defined as grade of prolapse <2, was 79.7%. Fifteen patients had a recurrence, 12 were treated with biological VS meshes and 3 were treated with synthetic meshes. Vaginal erosion was reported in 5 (6.7%) of these patients, two of whom were treated with topic estrogenic therapy, and three of whom with partial excision. These results suggest that this technique is safe and efficacious and that the best meshes to use are synthetic meshes, because they have a lower recurrence rate than biological meshes.
