SOLA DALENZ, V.; PARDO SCHANZ, J.; RICCI ARRIOLA, P.  and  GUILOFF FISCHE, E.. Tension free monofilament polypropylene mesh in cystocele and rectocele concomitant repair. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2005, vol.29, n.10, pp.977-980. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objective: We presented our experience in the concomitant correction of cystocele and rectocele with polypropylene monofilament mesh (Gynemesh PS), with transvaginal free tension technique. Method: During 2004 correction was made in 7 patients, Urogynecologic and Vaginal Surgery Unit of Gynecology and Obstetrics Department, Las Condes Clinic. Medium age 54 years old, weight 64 kgs. In four patients we used a third mesh for correction of urinary incontinence by TVT-O. Results: They don’t present intraoperative complications, neither in immediate or delayed postoperative time. We not observed hematoma, infection, erosion or exposition mesh. Cure of cystocele and rectocele was in the 100% of patients. Complications have not appeared, 4 cases completed three months of observation, 2 cases two months and 1 case one month. Discussion: The use of protesic polypropylene multifilament macropore mesh in the concomitant correction of cistocele and rectocele, by transvaginal route with tension free technique seems to be a safe and effective surgery procedure.
