Abstract

Pelvic organ prolapse repair with mesh remains the gold standard for advanced prolapse. There are several surgical approaches available to the pelvic reconstructive surgeon. Prolapse repair can be performed vaginally or abdominally using native tissue or may be augmented with a biologic or mesh patch. In this article, we will review the different approaches to prolapse repair, the role of mesh, and the risks and benefits of each option. Patient selection, surgical technique, and the rationale for using mesh will be explored. Complications from prolapse repair with mesh including dyspareunia, pelvic pain, mesh exposure, and reoperation will be discussed.
