OBJECTIVES: To study the efficacy and safety of the Perigee® System for the treatment of anterior vaginal prolapse in our experience with a medium term follow-up.
METHODS: Prospective analysis on 48 consecutive patients with stage II-IV cystocele diagnosed from June 2006 until June 2009 using the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantitation classification without other associated prolapses. All diagnoses were done by a single urological specialist and follow-up is between 3 to 6 years. The questionnaire Patient Global Impression of Improvement was carried out before surgery, at the first follow up checking at one month, and at 6 and 12 months. The variables evaluated were age, presence of obesity, parity, prior hysterectomy, ASA class and stage of prolapse.
RESULTS: The result, evaluating the questionnaire Patient Global Impression of Improvement, was cured or improved in 40 (83.3%) patients and 87.5% according to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantitation, with a recurrence rate of 6.25%. Intraoperative complications were observed in 12.5% of the patients, postoperative in 4.2% and 41.5% after hospital discharge, pain being the most common complication (16.6%). The key variables for procedural failure were age 65 years >, obesity, parity ≥ 2, prolapse stage ≥ III and prior hysterectomy (p <0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: In our series the Perigee® System allows anatomic repair with less morbidity, hospital stay and recovery time.
