BACKGROUND: Complications associated with the use of synthetic mesh during an abdominal sacral colpopexy procedure include mesh infection and erosion into the vaginal vault and sacral osteomyelitis. CASE: This case report describes the management of an abdominal sacral colpopexy procedure that was complicated by postoperative vaginal mesh erosion, formation of a fistulous tract from the vaginal apex to the sacrum, and development of diskitis, osteomyelitis, and a sacral abscess. CONCLUSION: Treatment of a vaginal mesh erosion complicated by the formation of a sinus tract after abdominal sacral colpopexy should include extensive sinus tract resection in addition to complete mesh removal.
