Consensus Statement of the European Urology Association and the European Urogynaecological Association on the Use of Implanted Materials for Treating... Materials for Reconstructive Gynecologic Surgery. As illustrated in Table 1,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 all honest clinical series reporting repair of pelvic organ prolapse show (1) some outright failures and (2) deterioration of initially good outcomes over time.
Such clinical observations have encouraged surgeons to enhance their outcomes by supplementing their repairs with exogenous materials. Table 1. Objective success rates of pelvic organ prolapse repair procedures using endogenous tissues The logical reconstructive materials to consider are the patient’s own tissues. For many years, gynecologic surgeons have relied on a variety of endogenous materials, including uterosacral ligaments, pelvic fascia, skin, muscle, and locally available connective tissue. The uterosacral ligaments are probably the most used endogenous material for vaginal suspension.
Vaginal fascia has been discussed in gynecologic operating rooms for more than 100 years, typically during anterior colporrhaphy. Table 2. Table 3. . * Derived from selected abstracts.

All pelvic, perineal and obstetrical procedures potentially expose patients to pelvic nerve injuries.
Even when reports about surgical pelvic nerves are rare in current literature, the rates of pelvic nerves damage after secondary to pelvic organ prolapse surgery are unknown and probably widely underestimated. Damages happening during interventions are due to coagulation, suturing, ischemia or cutting and induce troubles of sensation, pain and dysfunctions starting immediately after the procedure or after a short interval of several days. In contrast, nerve lesions by fibrotic tissue (fibrotic entrapment) or vascular compression / entrapment usually require several months or even years to develop.

Degradation off polypropylene mesh. Complications arise from mesh used in pelvic surgeries. A synthetic mesh commonly used to treat a form of urinary incontinence as well as the weakening of the female pelvis’s walls can lead to complications that increase in frequency with the amount of mesh used, new Weill Cornell Medicine research suggests.
In the United States, about 1 in 5 women by the age of 80 will undergo surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), a condition in which the bladder leaks due to pressure caused by physical movement, or pelvic organ prolapse (POP), which occurs when a woman’s uterus or vaginal walls weaken and descend. While surgeons contend that mesh increases the success of these surgeries by reinforcing the weakened vaginal walls or acting as a sling to support the urethra, recent studies suggest that the device actually leads to infections and complications. For their study, published Nov. 30 in JAMA Surgery, researchers analyzed data from more than 41,000 women who underwent surgery for the conditions between 2008 and 2012.
Host response to synthetic mesh in women with mesh complications. BACKGROUND - Despite good anatomic and functional outcomes, urogynecologic polypropylene meshes that are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence are associated with significant complications, most commonly mesh exposure and pain.
Few studies have been performed that specifically focus on the host response to urogynecologic meshes. The macrophage has long been known to be the key cell type that mediates the foreign body response. Conceptually, macrophages that respond to a foreign body can be dichotomized broadly into M1 proinflammatory and M2 proremodeling subtypes. A prolonged M1 response is thought to result in chronic inflammation and the formation of foreign body giant cells with potential for ongoing tissue damage and destruction.

Synthetic mesh in pelvic reconstructive surgery: an ongoing saga. Controversy surrounding the use of polypropylene mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) continues and has entered a new phase, with large healthcare companies withdrawing from the area of female pelvic floor surgery either partially (Perigee, Johnson & Johnson) or completely (Astora Womens Health; formerly American Medical Systems).
This has occurred because of adverse publicity and cost of medical ligation mainly in the USA. We have covered this issue previously in an editorial and debate  but feel further discussion is warranted, having reached this new stage.

Introduction Pelvic organ prolapse is a common condition in aging women.
To date, the impact of mesh on the vagina has not been defined and so the mechanism by which mesh complications occur remains unknown. Currently, light-weight (<45 g/m2), large pore (>1 mm2) monofilament polypropylene meshes appear to be best tolerated by the vagina in reconstructive pelvic surgeries.
Of these meshes, Gynemesh PS (Ethicon, Sommersville, NJ, USA), the prototype prolapse mesh, is the most widely used. Since the introduction of Gynemesh PS, numerous other lighter weight polypropylene meshes have been brought to market.

Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Geneeskunde. 000228.pdf. Dr. Mueller Uses Ultrasound to Identify Surgical Mesh. MRI will not show the placement of mesh and neither can an X-Ray. However, one modality that can depict mesh is ultrasound. According to Dr. Elizabeth Mueller, Division and Fellowship Director of Female Public Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, ultrasound is the only modality that allows her to not only detect mesh, but perform more precise mesh removal surgeries.
We had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Mueller about her experiences using our Analogic ultrasound system to identify and properly treat women with mesh complications.

By actively participating in negotiations and discussion on health matters we try to influence policy. And now you can contribute as well. The European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) started a working group to write a Scientific Opinion for the European Commission on the safety of meshes in urogynecological surgery. The European Commission will use the Scientific Opinion as a scientific basis to discuss the issue of surgical meshes at the Standing Committees on medical devices. We invite you to provide us with your professional view on this matter in order to improve the scientific basis of the Opinion.

Summary of "Ultrasound appearances after mesh implantation-evidence of mesh contraction or folding? " INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Polypropylene meshes are frequently used in abdominal and vaginal reconstructive surgery. Recently, several authors have claimed that mesh-associated complications may be linked to mesh shrinkage. We have performed a prospective study with postoperative follow-up by ultrasound examination at two time points after Prolift anterior implantation to assess changes in the ultrasound appearance of mesh implants over time.
METHODS: We assessed 36 patients who had undergone mesh implantation with Prolift anterior(™) mesh for the correction of symptomatic anterior vaginal wall prolapse. During the surgery, we measured the actual midline length of the mesh (initial length). Maggie De Block verlaagt prijs van implantaten en wil dat artsen er enkel plaatsen als het echt moet.

Biofilms are complex three-dimensional structures comprised of bacteria encapsulated in extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) that form on virtually all surfaces exposed to the natural environment, including the human body.
Biofilm formation on biomedical implants in the human body constitutes the main reason for their failure, because of the low susceptibility of organisms in a biofilm mode of growth to antimicrobials and the host immune system (2). The resistance of bacteria in a biofilm to antibiotics has been attributed to the EPS matrix, acting as a protective barrier (3) and preventing nutrients from penetrating into the deeper layers of a biofilm.
