BUJONS, Anna et al. The presence of a Prolene mesh in the vagina. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.6, pp.627-631. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To describe the clinical case of a patient presenting complications after the implantation of a Prolene mesh as reinforcement for the correction of a recurrent cystocele. Methods/results: Seventy-five-years-old female patient with history of previous cystocele repair with Prolene mesh presenting urinary incontinence and vaginal erosion of the mesh. Conclusions: The use of mesh for the repair of cystoceles has the advantage of providing greater support to the colporrhaphy and avoiding recurrences. Nevertheless, it may present complications as in our reported case with mesh migration, fistula, infection, or intolerance.

Keywords : Prolene mesh; Urinary incontinence; Cystocele.
