Abstract

Preoperative care is standardized and is accompanied by antibiotic prophylaxis, preventive antithrombotic treatment and in the event of a history of pelvic surgery, a digestive preparation. Positioning of the patient must plan a 30° Trendelenbourg position. After the introduction the trocars, initial surgery comprises anterior dissection of promontory after incision of the posterior peritoneum with the patient placed beforehand in a Trendelembourg position. After that, we make interrectovaginal dissection to free the whole posterior surface of the vagina. This is followed by the installation of a posterior mesh pre-cut in an arc. After intervesical vaginal dissection, the anterior prosthesis comprising a precut polyester mesh is fixed avoiding excess traction. The end of the surgery involves careful reperitonization of all the prosthetic parts. Possible specific surgical complications are vascular and visceral wounds. RESULTS Y CONCLUSIONS: The technique allows the correction of the dysfunction of the pelvic floor and incontinence with good anatomical and functional results. Postoperative secondary haemorrhage and gastrointestinal occlusion may occur. Occurrence of an inflammatory syndrome and low back pain suggests spondylodicitis and MRI should be performed. Vaginal erosion on the prosthesis may occur after several months and seems relatively independent of the prosthetic material used.
