Pure transvaginal excision of mesh erosion involving the bladder
- 295 Downloads
Introduction and hypothesis
We present a pure transvaginal approach to the removal of eroded mesh involving the bladder secondary to placement of transvaginal mesh for management of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) using a mesh kit.
Although technically challenging, we demonstrate the feasibility of a purely transvaginal approach, avoiding a potentially more morbid transabdominal approach.
The video presents the surgical technique of pure transvaginal excision of mesh erosion involving the bladder after mesh placement using a prolapse kit was performed.
This video shows that purely transvaginal removal of mesh erosion involving the bladder can be done safely and is feasible.
