Prosthetic reinforcement in the surgical repair of pelvic prolapse by the vaginal approach is not devoid of tolerability-related problems such as vaginal erosion. [] Key Method Two hundred and seventy-seven patients undergoing surgery due to pelvic prolapse with transvaginal mesh technique were included in a continuous, retrospective study between January 2002 and December 2003. Thirty-four cases of mesh exposure were observed within the 2 months following surgery, which represents an incidence of 12.27…

TLDR
The study suggests that transvaginal polypropylene mesh applied with a tension-free technique is a safe and effective method with low intraoperative complications and low morbidity rates, however, some complications are serious and require highly specialised management.
Anterior Bilateral Sacrospinous Fixation With Transvaginal Mesh: Is Hysterectomy a Risk Factor for Complications?
TLDR
Concomitant and previous hysterectomy did not appear to increase the severe complication rate or anatomical failure after transvaginal mesh surgery, however, a history of hystEREctomy appears to be a risk factor for vaginal mesh exposure.

TLDR
The surgical complications and mesh erosion of Transvaginal mesh was reported in a quantified communicable method-the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA)/International Continence Society (ICS) scale and the Clavien and Dindo Classification.

Vaginal Hysterectomy at the Time of Transvaginal Mesh Placement
TLDR
When incisions for mesh placement are kept separate from the vaginal cuff, transvaginal mesh reconstruction can be safely performed at the time of hysterectomy.
Mesh Exposure and Associated Risk Factors in Women Undergoing Transvaginal Prolapse Repair with Mesh
TLDR
Women with diabetes have a 7-fold increased risk for mesh exposure after transvaginal prolapse repair using Prolift, and the anterior vaginal wall may be at higher risk of mesh exposure as compared to the posterior vaginal wall.
Risk Factors for Mesh Exposure after Transvaginal Mesh Surgery
TLDR
Concomitant procedures and increased operating time increase the risk for postoperative mesh exposure in patients undergoing TVM surgery for POP.

TLDR
The vaginal repair of severe cystocele reinforced with a tension-free polypropylene mesh is a simple and reproducible technique, with high success rate and low morbidity.
Horseshoe-Shaped Marlex Mesh for the Treatment of Pelvic Floor Prolapse
TLDR
An insertion and fixation of a horseshoe-shaped Marlex mesh between pubis and sacrum to close the area between the pelvic viscera and inferior pelvic hiatus seems to give promising results in the repair of genitourinary prolapse and stress incontinence.
[Transobturator subvesical mesh. Tolerance and short-term results of a 103 case continuous series].
TLDR
Transobturator mesh is a safe and efficient method for anterior segment prolapse repair and Vaginal erosion ratio is 5% and recurrence ratio is 3% at 18 months post operative follow-up.
[Tolerance of synthetic tissues and vaginal surgery. Report of 287 cases].
TLDR
It is suggested that the synthetic tissue tolerance is proportional to the exposed surface and to the distance which separates it from the vaginal scar, and the ideal synthetic mesh material for pelvic surgery has yet to be developed.
Management of vaginal erosion of polypropylene mesh slings.
TLDR
Sling preservation with continued patient continence and satisfaction is a feasible option in those with vaginal exposure of polypropylene mesh, and the recent literature suggests that poly Propylene mesh erosion should be treated with complete removal of the sling material.
Mechanical properties of synthetic implants used in the repair of prolapse and urinary incontinence in women: which is the ideal material?
TLDR
The most promising of theses products for applications in transvaginal surgery to restore pelvic function appears to be the synthetic prostheses made predominantly of polypropylene, which offer mechanical properties of durability and elasticity.
[Development of better tolerated prosthetic materials: applications in gynecological surgery].
TLDR
Prolene is the most adapted mesh, allowing free tension between the bladder and the anterior vaginal wall, and an ideal implant material must be capable of resisting mechanical stress and sterilization, and be able to be manufactured in the necessary shape.
